Advent calendar

 

Last year we found this adorable, handmade Advent Calendar at a yard sale. I love it!

Last year I just out candy and candy canes in the stockings, but this year I told the kids that the season is about giving as much as receiving. So, instead of them recieving in all thier stockings on the calendar they would give too. They were cool with that.

So, they will do things like pick up trash in the neighborhood, bake cookies for neighbors, leave handmade holiday cards and candy canes for neighbors, make a donation to the animal shelter, stuff like that.
And for recieving they get things like candy, stay up late, sleepover, bake cookies with mom, hot chocolate, movie rental, choose family game, stuff like that.

I think it will teach them a great lesson.

 

I love the Holidays!
