In this post: The days are long but the years are short, so make the most of this Holiday season. Free printable family holiday advent calendar activity cards.
Part of the joy of this season – this Christmas season – is time with family. But I know it can be hard to slow down with the hustle and bustle of the Holidays. There are cookies to be baked, volunteer hours to be filled and presents to buy. However, I promise you, if you carve out a few hours with your family, it will be worth the investment in time to build those relationships.
When our kids were little, it felt like we’d be in ‘that’ season forever. Like we’d never get a full night’s sleep again. Like we’d forever be wiping bums and wiping noses. But suddenly Dean and I find ourselves with three teenagers in the house, and our days and nights look very different these days. Our oldest is technically an adult now. The saying ‘the days are long but the years are short’ is ringing so very true for us this year and I want to make the most of this Holiday season in particular.

One of the ways we have been deliberate about time together in the past and how I hope we can spend time making memories together this year is to participate in a family holiday Advent.

Some activities include:

How to Use Your Printable Advent Calendar Activity Cards
You can print the Advent calendar activity cards and cut them out. Then use them like we did with our scripture Advent cards here or put them in little brown baggies like we did in this post. Or just cut them out and stack them on the counter, grabbing a new one each day whenever your family is together (like at breakfast or dinner).
