diy // christmas advent calendar

 Woah, it's been a while since I last blogged. November has turned out to be a rather busy month, especially with school. 
  But I also have spent some time making some more Christmas crafts, including thing one above. It's an advent calendar, of sorts. There is a cut-out for each day in December leading up to Christmas day with an activity and a Christmas-related Scripture reference at the back.
  Other than that it took some time to cut everything out, it's a really easy craft to make - and it was super fun thinking up things to do this Christmas-time :)

 Here are a few of the activity-ideas I used:

Make a Christmas Playlist
Make Apple Cider
Watch 'It's a Wonderful Life'
Read 'A Christmas Carol'
Have a Snow-ball Fight
Make Sugar Cookies
Go See 'The Hobbit' movie (very important)
Make an Ornament for the Tree

And here are a few Bible verses/passages I used:

 I John 4:9
Isaiah 9:6
Luke 2: 12-14
Matthew 2: 1-12
John 3:16-17
Acts 4:12

 Not only will it be fun to use this December, but it will also help make my room look more festive. :)
