Advent day 1 :: Make ice cream sundaes


It's the first time I've ever put the advent calendar up by December 1. Yay me!  This year, rather than treats every day, we're going to have 24 days of fun things.  There are lots of ideas around blogland for advent activities and this year we're doing the same.  Having fun, making and giving. That's how we'll be celebrating the countdown to Christmas this year.  

Day one :: make ice cream sundaes for afternoon tea.  With home made chocolate sauce and preserved cherries. And 100 and 1000s for an extra special treat.

The peeps are so very excited. They can't wait to see what fun thing will be on for tomorrow.

  4. Such a nice idea. I can just imagine the excitement. I might have to borrow it for my little people when their delight in Christmas knock knock jokes wears off in a day or two.

  5. Those ice-cream sundaes look delicious.

    We have had 3 days of Santa Chocolates because I am so disorganized this year. I might add this to the list - next week perhaps, as it's pouring rain here at the moment.
