Our San Antonio Christmas Countdown - A list of holiday activities and events for the family! #holidaysa

What? There are 11 days until Christmas?!

I have no idea where the time went, but here it is...our 2012 San Antonio Christmas Countdown!

In our home, I create a countdown to Christmas with some jute, scrapbook paper and clothespins. I number the days and use post it notes behind the day for activities, or attach a little wrapped candy or trinket. 

One of the great things about a countdown calendar is that the activities are hidden, so if something pops up and you need to do a switcheroo, the kids may never know! And now that the kids can read, I be sure to attach the post it note for the next day before I go to bed.

Here is our list of advent activities that you can still do with you kids! 

Some Tips for a smooth countdown:
  • Check out Pinterest for craft ideas
  • DVR some holiday specials or holiday movies instead of buying dvds
  • Incorporate school, church and community activities in your list
  • Keep it simple and stress-free! Don't lose the meaning of the holidays :)
  • And check out simplemom.net and their Plan Your Peaceful Christmas series

Hope you get to make some great memories before the big day!
