day six

Christmas calendars, day six

Day six – it may be quite (very!) warm in many parts of Australia today, but all our advent calendars are focussing on cold weather for day six!

Ornament calendar

I think this is a very pretty ornament – the subtle purples on the blue and white gives it a sense of depth and cold that adds to the realism of our snowflake.

Lego City

Yesterday was the Lego Friends snowman, and today is Lego City‘s turn, complete with a hot chocolate.

And today’s Lego ornament is a stocking, complete with mistletoe.

Christmas book

Tonight we will be reading a bit of applause for Mrs Clause, although I’m not sure I need any reminders about how many jobs are still on my to do list! Of course, I’m pleased to say we will happily help Mrs Claus with the pile of Santa letters she needs to write!

On the sixth day of Christmas…

Our Lego sets gave to us… A snow plough attachment and a little pet!

Just be glad you could hear yourself sing the 12 days of Christmas that rather than me!

So the Lego City advent calendar tonight was an attachment for last night’s machine so that we now have a snow plough and some snow!

And I think it’s sweet that there are lines on the diorama to match the
snow mobile wheels!

In the Friends calendar, my daughter discovered a small animal and a partial home for it – complete with a water bottle which is very cute.

So, moving onto day 6 of the Christmas count down! Remember you can read the introduction to our Lego advent reviews or catch up on day five.

As we had a family Christmas function this evening, we had to do the calendar quickly tonight, but that doesn’t make it any less fun or exciting for the kids 🙂

Lego City provided a toy snow plough, complete with key for winding it! In fact, there were two keys as most days we have had at least one spare piece of Lego in the box – the usual extra provided by Lego.

Lego Friends turned up some skiing equipment – skis, helmet and goggles, stocks and spares. They were immediately put on one the Lego girls already opened up, with the hair* popped into today’s box in the meantime.

*Lego people can’t have hair and a hat/helmet at the same time, just in case removing the hair seems a little strange to you 🙂
