Here are two activities to do before December 1st. Both are calendars where for every day the child puts a message or a drawing by which they promise to do something to help their parents with the holiday preparations.

If you like this idea but you are not comfortable with the term "Advent Calendar", you could call it a "Caring Calendar".


The first calendar has a heart-shaped pouch for each day until Christmas, while the second calendar is a Christmas tree with one ornament for each day.


Both projects come with a list of sample messages. For the tree, there are also many picture messages.


Because you are a Pro

This week we published a Zentangle drawing of the year's last zodiac sign: Capricorn. And two printables for Thanksgiving: a turkey colouring exercise based on the table of multiplication by 8, and a colouring page of a pioneer woman.

Also: a spot-the-differences game, a mandala, a maze, a pre-writing exercise, a sudoku with toys, a connect-the-dots bear, and a subtractions exercise.
