If like me you hate how season can be all commercialize. Do this, do that, that it all can be overwhelming. So, this year I did this...
Each envelope contains, an alphabet letters that they must say and write for practice. A Christmas pictures is associated with each alphabet letter. Then a bible passage reading that I read to them. Then a activity to do for that day. I thought ahead on what day we would be doing what, example I planned to go out for dessert the night of my son Christmas concert because I knew it would work out best for our family. Here are links that helped me organize: Alphabet Letters, Advent Scripture, Activity list, some where last year. If you search pinterest you find a lot. Chose one that fits you and your family. I think these activities has made the season so much richer and managable for me.
