We were surprised by how little Lily actual knows about the meaning of Christmas so I've been thinking about doing an advent calendar for the kids this year with tiny homemade gifts, candy and "meaning of Christmas" letters inside, then showcasing some of the tiny projects on Grosgrain. So I've been looking for advent inspiration. There's a bountiful supply out there. Here are 10 of my favs. Any of you have a favorite advent calendar you'd like to share?
I like the idea of hiding them in the tree for the kids to find each day.
I also liked dedicating an entire wall to it. And using felt or fleece.
Making a row of stockings and draping at end of bed.
Cards with notes of things to do that day.
Mason jars filled with items with days on tags.
Yarn wrapped brown paper packages hanging on a pin board.
Okay, these are just the cutest and most eye catching but I don't think I'd have the patience to make 25 of them;)
Boxes in the shape of a tree with numbered stickers.
Wrapped coffee cans.
