Nov29 Homemade Advent Calendar 2012

It’s almost December 1st, which means the start of the beautiful advent calendar tradition. If you are looking to make your own, this one is such a precious idea from Shim & Sons.

First you can purchase craft boxes and use Martha Stewarts rub on transfer numbers, or just use stickers with a cute printout of the numbers.

On some days the kids will open the box and receive and small little toy.

On other days the kids will open the box and find a fun family activity planned for the day. I LOVE this idea. Maybe you could add a little peppermint candy to add to the excitement.
