Still suffering with back pain (looks like I have something called piriformis syndrome), but I’m going to try a short, sweet Christmassy blog post every day as a little Advent Calendar for you all.
First up you must get your kids (and yourselves) a Jacquie Lawson Advent Calendar. These magically beautiful online calendars feature gorgeous animations, and lovely music, with a new little interactive Christmassy game or a charming little story or scenario every day. As you open more windows the scene becomes more detailed and beautiful, and it changes through the day to reflect the time and the phases of the moon. The Minx loves the little games such as decorating the Christmas tree and cutting out snowflakes online and spotting how the scene changes from day to day. (I’d say this was perfect for 5-10 year olds).
