Last year, I went crazy with this awesome hand embroidered/appliqued advent calendar. I’m so excited to pull it out this year. It starts on December 1, so if you want to make one, you’d better start now! You can see my posts related to the advent calendar from last year, here. Or you can see close-ups of each individual pocket on Flickr, here.
I’m currently working on my list of things that I’m going to put into the pockets. The items generally fell into three categories.
1) Small toys/candy/items that fit into the pocket.
2) Notes that told the kids that we’d be doing something special that day, “Go pick out our Christmas tree!”
3) Notes that took the kids on a scavenger hunt through the house for an item that was too large to fit into the pocket.
I’ll keep you updated on my list! My first step is pulling out my list from last year and starting from there.
