We've got an easy, DIY lineup of Christmas activities that kids and adults will enjoy. While it's fun to pop open a store bought Advent calendar and enjoy a piece of chocolate every day (or one day, if you're like certain people we know), this year more than ever we're on the lookout for fun activities that will keep kids entertained and get us out of the house safely. What better way to stay motivated than by creating a countdown to Christmas? We've made it super simple for you. Let's get going!
When to Start
Many people out there can muster up the energy for an entire month's worth of holiday activities, but that honestly feels really overwhelming to us right now. So we've stuck to the handy number twelve. The traditional Twelve Days of Christmas starts on Christmas Day itself. If you'd rather countdown to Christmas, start on December 13th in order to finish up on the 24th.

Winter is coming—but don’t fret! We’ve got the perfect activity to brighten your day and your door.

Much of my love for flowers came from my mom. She was the flower gardener at our house. Every year she planned the flower beds, got tulip bulbs into the ground in fall, and was always on top of keeping things weeded and tidy and beautiful. As I grew older, I started helping out with the design and upkeep of her amazing flower beds. I loved working out in the yard with her!
As you can probably guess, those memories make Mother’s Day floral arrangements very near and dear to my heart. My mom lives in a different state, though, and I’m unable to create something myself that can be delivered to her.
