Advent Activity Day 14



In the short amount of time between school ending and then leaving to go to swimming lessons, the boys rustled up their Christmas creations. Climber put a lot of thought into how to make a good Lego star for the top of his tree. As for Cherub's creation, I don't want any Northern hemisphere readers to be fooled by it. It may look like a Lego snowball, but Melbourne children have no real association between Christmas and snow. It's a bauble for hanging on a Christmas tree. I might even try running a thread through it. Oh look, I just did ....



  1. I love the gifts strewn casually around the base of Climber's tree. My Pete would be proud of Cherub's careful monotone block selection. He always told my kids, "You can't use a blue block on a white roof."

  2. Isn't lego wonderful, and that's such a doable advent activity and it uses stuff you already have - we might have to copy.

  3. I'm enjoying your advent activities so much! And ... kind of wishing my kids weren't too old for this sort of thing. (Don't tell anyone I said that. I have a reputation to protect.)

  4. Aren't Lego's the best!!! Super cute Lego tree ornament!! Lego's are such a big deal in the house, too!!
