Holiday Adventure Task Wish List

It’s time, it’s here!

It’s Christmas Time!!!

I love this time of year, there’s so much to do and see. I can hardly figure out where to begin.

First, we break out the “24 Chocolate Days” or what regular people call, an advent calendar.  One of my kids, no naming names, saves up the chocolates so there will be a whole bunch to eat at once.

We also make a list of all the things we want and need to do and see during this wonderfully festive season.

In the past all the things were put into the daily advent house and we pulled out the day’s event or task. That didn’t always work out, so this year I am just going to go with a Holiday Adventure Task Wish List.

Here is what we are hoping to accomplish this holiday season.

  1. Put up the tree
  2. Winter Wonderland
  3. Make reindeer food
  4. Make popcorn garland
  5. Deliver Elves for Elders gifts
  6. La Salette Shrine
  7. Celebrate Maizie’s Birthday
  8. Send Christmas Cards
  9. Light Show – Mystic
  10. Make Gingerbread House
  11. Watch Christmas movies in pajamas
  12. Shop for each other
  13. Drive around and look at lights
  14. Decorate cookies
  15. Pancakes and cocoa for dinner
  16. Visit Santa
  17. Make giant snowflakes
  18. Make a wreath
  19. Make fudge
  20. Make ornaments
  21. Waffle cake trees
  22. Put out presents
  23. Holiday market
  24. Auntie Sally’s

There it is. On some days we might not do anything, on others we may double up. There may be things we do that are not on this list, who knows what the season brings.

Do you have anything planned this Holiday Season?

  1. Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. I love the 24 Chocolate Days, that is my kind of advent calendar.

  2. I forgot about advent calendars this year and last. I used to love them as a kid and know my kids used to enjoy them too, kind of bummed.

    The only thing I have planned is to get lots of baking done and make sure I get all my work done in time for the holidays so I can enjoy with my family!

  3. You sure have a fully booked holiday season! We don’t have lists like that, we just enjoy each day as it comes. My kids are grown so they do have activities of their own to attend. But when we are all together, we make the most of it. We cook, bake, play board games, watch a movie, make popcorn, etc. Happy times!

  4. We used to do those chocolate advent calendars when we were kids and I always saved all my chocolate, too! It’s better when you can stuff it all in your mouth at once at the end of the month.

  5. Last year my daughter got into the WHOLE calendar on like the third day. Hopefully she does better this year! I love your ideas of things to do, going to have to steal some

  6. You have a great plan for December and I love that it includes so many family activities. I bet your children will love Winter Wonderland. You are very organised for this season!

  7. I like your idea of writing all of your holiday plans out. That way you can see just how much you are doing for the family. I might steal your coco and pancake supper idea!

  8. This is one of my favorite times of year as well. I love spending time with family and friends during the holidays. It’s always the best. We just started doing those chocolate advent calendars too!

  9. Our plans include picking up and decorating a tree, hanging up lights, presents and cookies. We got a tree this past weekend waiting to be decorated and lights were hung already. Not much left we “need” to do so we can wing it!

  10. I love the holiday season and everything it entails, from baking to parties. But I think my fave thing to do is something I’ve done with my kids for years: doing community service projects such as serving Christmas dinner to the homeless.

  11. We are not going to our home country this holiday so we wrote many many things on papers, foled them and put them in a glass bottle. We take two papers out the night before and plan how we will do those activities the next day. This is our first time doing this and it is so much fun and I don’t have to use my brain much. >.< haha

  12. I always have a chocolate advent calendar once December hits, it’s a fun activity for all ages! I also like the idea of making an activity list for the month, it brings together the family and builds excitement for Christmas
