{ advent calendar FUN }

We began an Advent Calendar tradition last year...instead of the days being filled with candy & toys & trinkets...each day is a note or clues about an ACTIVITY we are going to do together as a family - skiing, sledding, volunteering at the local Food Bank, baking cookies together, making christmas tree ornaments going to see the Nutcracker, etc. So, its all about EXPERIENCES and time together vs. STUFF. You can see the calendar I made outlining each days activity here (click on the Dec. 08 calendar tab).

Need some Advent Calendar inspiration? Look at this lovely handmade advent calendar from Green Kitchen. Not so crafty? Garnet Hill has some great ones, as does etsy.
