Advent Calendars

Advent Calendars 

Nothing starts the holiday season off more in my mind then when the advent calendar comes out. We have tried a variety of different styles over the past few years. Little A is always excited to see what we have come up with.

This year as each door is opened on her advent tree she not only finds her magnetic ornament but she has also found a family dinner question. I searched around the internet for family friendly dinner questions and put together a document with some holiday clip art. Each night we ask the question at hand and record each family members answers on the back of the tag. Each slip will be put away in our Christmas memory book with our annual holiday photo cards. That way we can look back on them later as LittleA grows. I have uploaded  the questions to scribd so feel free to download a copy for your family. The little tags can easily be folded and slipped into most advent calendars with doors...or just number th ebacks and put them in a jar or in envelopes that can be opened each night.

Additionally if you would like the santa beard cotton ball count down that I mentioned last year - I now have that up on scribd too.
