Advent Boxes

Last year I put together an Advent Box for my Little Cherub, full of things that she could take out and explore.

This picture shows the contents of the box ...

  • Nativity figures - I have a set of squishy plastic figures for toddlers bought when my eldest daughter was tiny.
  • A wooden Santa figure that looks fairly St.Nicholas-ish.
  • Various small board books telling the Christmas story.
  • Pictures of the Five Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary
  • Pictures of St.Nicholas, St.Lucy, the journey to Bethlehem and the Immaculate Conception
  • Board book about Hannukah and a dreidl (I include these as my husband is Jewish)
Little Cherub loved her box, and played with it regularly throughout the Advent and Christmas seasons. Here she is enjoying herself with the Santa figure ...

This year, at two-and-a-half, I think she will enjoy it even more.
