After days of trolling Pintrest for Advent Calendar ideas, followed by more days of collecting materials and a very late night setting up, our first family advent calendar is up and creating christmas magic.
Instead of 24 Days of candy (and candy crazed kids) I opted for 24 of activities (with some candy here and there).
The whole kit and caboodle cost $100 including all materials, gifts, and activities (could be cheaper if you already have supplies).
Command Strip Hooks
Tags numbered 1-25 (25 if you want to include your xmas tree for the big day)
24 cheap craft items, books, gifts, and treats
Needless to say the boys were super super pumped this morning to start our new family tradition! It’s not too late to start yours either; just open up the days you missed in December once you get started!
