Hey, friends! Tomorrow is December 1st, can you believe it???
Here are a couple of pics of our advent calendar for this year. This has become a tradition for us, and although I **thought** maybe my kids were too old for this, they insisted on it!! We love to celebrate the coming of Christmas in this way.
(Ha – I guess as the kids get bigger the advent calendar does, too!)
This year, like previous years, there is either a small gift, candy, or and activity to do in each of the bags. See this post if you want more info on that and some other advent calendar ideas we’ve done in the past!
The white bags I bought at Michael’s and I simply used a chalkboard paint marker to dress them up. Then I chalked the numbers on them – sooo simple!! I used a store-bought chalkboard banner and christmas-y mini clothes pins that I bought on clearance last year for the finishing details. The bags are clipped and/or taped to a twine rope that is hung on the wall with 3M removable hooks.
The kids can’t wait to get started tomorrow!!
