24 tags with the activity written in them hung on a board with pins- then you can just remove the tag as you do the activity,....

I'm making little scrolls with the days activity written on, i'll tie them with string and put them in the pockets of our fabric calander smile

A small fake tree with each activity either pegged on paper, or in a bauble or something creative?

I'm in the process of making my dd an advent calendar with pockets so we can put what we like in it. She's only 18 months old so can changer with her age.
I saw tk maxx had some nice pocket ones the other day you could get one of those to put the tags etc in and can use it every year then even if it's just chocolates next year!

Ooh what a fab idea! Hadn't thought of doing activities as a cross off list! Nice idea to have as a tree smile may have to steal these grin

Decorate the tree
Visit soft play

Ooh they all sound great mine are 9 and 12 so not so easy as they don't believe and rant really into apartment and craft anymore.
I'm stealing the kiss under mistletoe and eat chocolate coins!

Write with a gold pen or a sharpie on little baubles and hang each one on the tree as you do it.

Make mini Christmas crackers and put each one inside instead of a joke.

Get the DCs to write in bug colourful lettering on a roll of wallpaper with a tick box for each.

Sounds like a great idea smile
