I am going to be honest. We have an advent calendar up every year and we’re horrible at being consistent about it. Heck! It’s December 5th and we just started. And I can almost guarantee that we’ll forget some other days along the way too or decide to do things out of order. That’s just the way the cookie crumbles over here.
1. Print out advent pages. Or you can make your own pages with your own Christmas sayings or verses.
2. Stamp the dates onto your pages. One page will have 12 and another will have 13 if you go up to December 25, or you can just go to the 24th and have 12 on each page.
3. Cut slits to make it easier to tear out each day.
4. Write your activities on the back. Ours are pretty easy and simple things.
When you have it all written down, just find a place to tape it up! If you don’t have kids yet, maybe you could use each day to leave a sweet little message for your special person. I think 25 days of special messages make a great Christmas gift!
I’ve seen tons of great advent calendars out there. I love how engaging Rachel’s are. This one is so funky cool and colorful! This one is a kid’s dream come true with all the pretty treats! And I love how whimsical this one is. Do you do an advent calendar? If so, what do you do? Or do you tend to miss out a few days like we do too?!
