Our Favorite Advent Calendars
The Holidays are Coming! The Holidays are Coming!
Can you believe that hot cocoa, sugar cookies, caroling and gift giving are right around the corner!
We actually just set up both of our Christmas trees the other day! I know, super early for most, but it’s a tradition in our family.
Why two trees you ask? Well, one of them we use as an Advent calendar. Years ago, I created canvas bags with holiday designs and numbers in a fun way to count down to Christmas. The bags are stuffed with little trinkets like stickers, coins, fun pens or other small treats that they get excited for!
For those of you who are looking for easier ways to celebrate Advent, there are many great calendar options out there! Some are already fully assembled and all you have to do is set it out on a table, and others are ready for you to fill with little gifts of your choice! Here are a few of our favorites:
