Advent Fun

I’ve been very inspired by all the fun advent ideas I’ve seen on the blogs lately. 

While we have a very special Advent calendar that we will use – one that my mom made and I used growing up – I wanted to add some fun extras.

Each pocket will contain one mini ornament to velcro on the Advent tree. Each pocket will also contain a special note with instructions to do a special something on that day.

Our Advent Calendar

More is More with Advent Calendars

I got most of my ideas from these fabulous blogs!

There are literally hundreds – if not thousands – of ideas at the above blogs, with links to more fabulous Christmas and Holiday crafts and projects and downloads. If I didn’t have to work I’d do them ALL lol! Even still, we are going to get some fun projects in this year.

I’ll be back with a photo of my advent cards once they’re all printed!

    Have fun with yours!!

    i loveeeed that calendar!! remember how we started eating the candies early so mom had to put one in every morning? and we would figure out what ‘days’ would be ours, and then switch the ornaments so we got our favorite ones?
