Advent Calendars

Well this year I finally got busy before Christmas to get some advent Calendars done. Usually, in years past I run out of time and realize it's already December and it's too late, seeing how you usually start the countdown to Christmas on Dec 1st!

In the shop I have three options to choose from. Each are able to be personalized for free with a last name, or a holiday word of your choice. Ex: "The Smiths"

First one is a thick 100% cotton natural background with a whimsical Christmas tree theme.



Next we have a green Canvas background with a more traditional Santa and Snowman theme.


And 3rd, another natural cotton background with a Christmas stocking theme.


All these have 25 generous sized pockets that you can stuff a treat in for every child in your family and maybe a little note with an activity or service to do that day as a family.
My boys look forward to this tradition every year!
It helps them see how many days are left until Christmas and of course the treat is a big hit. They also look forward to the slip of paper that has our family activity on it.

Some ideas for activities are: watch the movie Elf, make gingerbread men/houses, take cookies to neighbors, sing carols at a nursing home, make a snow man, go see Santa downtown, read Christmas books before bed, decorate the tree, go sledding, watch The Polar Express...
