Christmas Book Advent For Toddlers

November 21, 2017

Last year I decided to do a Christmas book advent instead of a traditional chocolate one, mainly because Ava was only 10 months old at the time and didn’t really have a clue what chocolate was or even what Christmas was for that matter. Once Christmas was over I packed away all the books we had opened to save them for this years book advent because lets face it, there’s no way she’s going to remember. I wonder how many years I can get away with hiding them for the following year??? This may be my last year of reusing the That’s not my… books for her but I reckon I can get away with the rest.

I picked up the majority of books from The works 10 for £10 deal and the rest were from Sainsburys. Sainsburys have a fab selection of children’s books at really good prices, all the That’s not my.. books were £3.49 each, a big saving on their usual retail price.

I plan to wrap the books in brown parcel paper and I have picked up some cute number stickers from to label them all. Last year I kept them all in a basket but I think this year I might have to hide them until each one is to be opened as trying to explain to a toddler why she can’t have the entire basket it not a battle I’m willing to embark on! I will mostly likely give her that days book once we have had breakfast, in the hope I will have 5 minutes peace to get myself ready.
