This is our Advent calendar this year:
It was a gift from one of my sisters last Christmas and I just love it!
Since the boy is too young for daily candy and tiny things, this year the treats are all for the girl. Each day she gets a chocolate and a couple Silly Bandz...she LOVES them!
Next year I plan to make the boy his own Muffin Tin Advent so that they each have their own with age appropriate things inside.
Something else that I am doing is putting a slip of paper with an activity for the day. Little things like watching a Christmas movie or playing a board game and then bigger things like going rollerskating or visiting Santa:) For a few of the days I have her open a little activity gift.
This is one of the activity gifts...Did you make these things as a kid? I did and when I saw them at the Dollar Tree I had to scoop them up! I found the tin and key chains there as well. I don't remember how to do this, so I will have to google it:)
This mug was also at the Dollar Tree and is for the night we go looking at lights. She can have her own little mug of HoCho(Gilmore Girls reference) while we drive around.
Christmas sun catchers! She gets to open these tomorrow.
Tinkerbell is a favorite around here, so I had to get this:)
Do you do things like this during Advent?
Linking up with these super rad parties!
