i remember as kids we always used to get one of those advent calendars filled with chocolates, and it was just the funnest thing. i haven’t had a calendar for a few years now, so i was inspired to find or make one that was a little more grown-up and could be used in years to come. i decided to use an iron-on template from amanda jane jones via oh happy day, and then i ordered these bags from amazon to iron the numbers onto. each bag has been filled with a piece of paper detailing an activity that we will do on that day – christmas-themed, of course (inspiration found here and here. we’ll be posting each week about that week’s activities, so you’ll have to stay tuned. [hopefully i'll have resisted my urge to stuff them all with chocolates before the end of the first week].
how about you all – do you have any advent calendar traditions in your families?
