Here is our countdown calender for this year.
This is not our advent calender.
I will post that later.
Advent starts Sunday December 2nd.
Countdown Calender begins Saturday, Dec. 1st.
I wanted something simple.
something out of the way.
not sitting around.
I cleared the bulletin board above the piano and
decided to use that space.
I bought these cute little polka dot envelopes at
JoAnn craft store in the Martha Stewart section.
I think they were 3.99 with 30% off.
You could use a coupon and get them cheaper.
You will need two packs.
Then I stamped them.
You could use a sharpie if you don't have stamps
or use stickers and let your kids do it.
Here's some things that we always include:
drive thru Christmas lights
Make gingerbread house
bake Christmas cookies
opry mills hotel visit
scavenger hunt around the house to find a small toy
any birthday parties we are going to in December
making bird feeders for backyard
make treats for friends at school
play dates with friends
I recommend that you write down somewhere else
what is in each envelope so if you need to switch things around
you can do that easily.
