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
