This year we decided to celebrate Advent. Advent is the ancient traditional count down to The coming of the Light, a time of stillness, peace, love and for us as a family to share and celebrate together.
I wanted a way in which we could all participate in the gift of giving, creating, sharing and celebrating mindfully as a family.
Instead of counting down on a calender and only recieving gifts for each day, we decided on a morning ritual and wanted a calender to open, with each day bringing new and exciting ideas of kindness, giving, togetherness and creativity.
We really loved her scroll idea.
I carefully constructed a list that I knew would work well in our everyday routine over the next 24 days and cut each one out.
We open one scroll everyday and follow the instructions.
Advent can be celebrated for many different reasons and in many different ways. At Rainbow Hollow this year, we have been having such fun connecting as a family every morning and waiting in anticipation of our next activity.
