Originally I was planning to just get the trains or cars advent calendars on the market, but he already has so many toy cars and trains; I decided to use his existing toys and give them the Christmas makeover.
Here is our homemade Christmas tree parking lot advent calendar! All his toy cars were wrapped with Xmas trees and parked on No.1-24 parking space.
Each tree were also written the numbers on the bottom. I would love my boss to experience all the Christmas traditions, so i drew small cards with different Xmas themes for each day and put them in the pocket of the parking space.
After he pulled out and read the card, the car could be driven out the parking lot and slide down to our big Xmas tree. There was a big box with daily activity things under the tree. Ryker loved the whole process so much and couldn’t wait to play with the next day car. It’s nice to see he play with his old toys more and learn about the history of Christmas with him every day.
On the first day the theme was gingerbread man; we read the book about ginger bear , visited a gingerbread house exhibition ( all made by elementary students), and made our own gingerbread house. On the second day it’s all about the ice skating… I will post all of our Christmas tradition activities soon. It’s really the most wonderful time of the year! 🙂
