I’m only seven days late, but I’ve made an advent calendar and thought I’d share it with you.
I saw a similar version somewhere and just had to make one. I started with a piece of pine from the hardware store, painted in white and sanded it for that rustic look. I did the same with the pegs.
Then I added little embellishments like bows and ribbon, wrapped up a chocolate to look like a present and hung them from the pegs.
I also included a nice “activity” in each present. A good deed we can do to help us remember that Christmas is about giving and sharing our love. Today’s said to write a nice note about someone in your family and hide it for them to find later. I can’t wait to see what the children have written to each other. I know it will be something to keep forever.
How do you count down the days until Christmas?
