I am so excited to share this fun project with you: 24 Days of Togetherness PDF! I was inspired to make it after almost buying a neat advent calendar from Starbucks several years ago.
Each day of the calendar was filled with chocolate or another fun surprise, so it was a lot more festive than the cheap-y ones I usually buy from Walgreens or CVS, but it came at a price. The Starbucks advent calendar cost $29.95, which was a lot more than I wanted to pay, so I didn’t buy it.
I was a little bummed, but I started to think about how I could make my own super-awesome advent calendar and what I would want to include inside it. My thoughts led me to chocolate, of course, but then to all of the holiday activities I wanted to do before Christmas Day – and soon the idea for “24 Days of Togetherness” came to life.
24 Days of Togetherness is basically a holiday bucket list that I do together with my family. The holiday season always flies by, so I wanted to find a way to really enjoy it together.
If you’re interested in participating in “24 Day of Togetherness” with your significant other, kids or another family member or friend, here’s what you need:
- 24 Days of Togetherness PDF
- Pen or marker
- A tin, box, basket, bag, etc.
Simply cut up the pre-made list of items and select 24 activities that you’d like to complete (or mix in your own ideas using the blank slips of paper at the end). I know how busy we all get during this time of year, so some of the activities are as simple as “drink hot cocoa” together. But, of course, select the activities that best fit your preferences and situation. Then, fold up each activity, put them in a festive container, and pick one piece of paper every day from December 1 – 24.
Be sure to make your “24 Days of Togetherness” kit now, so you’re ready when the fun begins on December 1st!
