On this new series, a Craft a Day, you will find five activities that you can enjoy with your kids, one for each day of the week. I will be posting them on Saturdays so that you can use the weekend to get any supplies that you may need.

Now I’m not supermom and I don’t expect you to be either, but hopefully you may try one or two of these activities with me and my kids! You don’t have to do every single one and you don’t even have to do it this week. I just hope to give a resource for some great fun!
Some weeks I may have a theme and some I may not but either way we are going to have some fun together.
Advent calendars are one of my all time favorite things as a child so this next week is dedicated to them.
Quick & Easy Advent Calendar – You can either use those neat tree doilies or have your little one cut out a tree. Or if you have a really young child have them paint it. And you will be ready to start your countdown!
Weekend Make and Takes Advents – I love this chain advent, you could help your child with this by using glue dots and showing them where the rings go. You can do it in the tree form or in a regular chain. Or for older children make it a scavenger hunt and put clues on the links.
Christmas Craft Stick Bookmarks – These could be turned into a fun advent. Help your child make 24 and use them by pulling each one out of a jar as you come closer to Christmas. What do you think, any ideas?
Cookie Advent – This may be my favorite of all. Let your child help you make cookies. Zane love to help me dump measuring cups in and count the items (eggs, cups of sugar, etc). But then you can let them decorate their cookies also. I love it!
If you do any of these crafts and happen to take a picture or write a blog post about it please make sure and share your link in the comments. Also don’t forget to link the original crafter! I may feature you and your blog on next weeks post!
Healthy Mom = Healthy Family - That is my life motto and I hope to encourage it to be yours too. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight and lost 80+ pounds. I saw my boys start getting active with me and I realized I wasn't only changing my life but also my boys.
