I went out of my way to come and write this review because we have so loved these Advent cards. Like most people, the holidays can be really busy and having an advent calendar is fun but not if every day is some fancy activity or outing. It can often only add to the busyness. This is a huge stack of cards with both fancy festivities like going to see a Christmas production and simpler special activities like dancing to holiday music or reading aloud. As a busy mom, I so appreciate the latter. Thank you, Gathre for creating such a fun string of activities to do with my children that embrace the excitement of Christmas as well as the simple pleasures that surround the season as well. My children look forward to drawing these cards every night and have enjoyed all the activities whether it’s something extravagant or simple.
