Advent day 1

This year I’ve done something a little different. My two eldest now ‘know’ about Santa so I wanted to add more excitement and decided to do an Advent lucky dip.

Since September I’ve been buying bits and bobs and wrapping them up so that the person whose turn it is to open the door on the calendar also gets to pick a film and a present from the bag. Each parcel contains either four things or something that can be shared four ways.

Today it was Oona’s turn. 

She got the star. This is not the original star, I had to make one because the original got lost!

She picked a parcel from the bag and got a tube of fruit pastilles.

This idea has been a real hit! wish I’d have thought of it years ago 🙂
