It's that wonderful time of year! We joyfully count the days until Christmas! This year, I made an easy Christmas Calendar with materials I already have at home. Brown paper bags, red and green construction paper, green glitter paper, clothespins, and red ribbon. I spent part of Sunday afternoon making the numbers and then glued them to the bags. I clipped each bag to a red ribbon strung along the staircase.
Each bag holds surprises for my children. Nothing fancy.
Some bags have little cards sharing a fun activity we will do that day.
Decorating gingerbread houses.
Going out at night to look at Christmas lights in our neighborhood.
Baking Christmas fudge for friends.
|A sweet little reminder of baby Jesus in this bag.|
Does your family have a special way to count down the days until Christmas?
I'd love to know!
