We had an empty egg carton laying around, and when I opened it, I realized this one had 24 little compartments. Hmm… 24? Are you thinking what I’m thinking??
Hello, Advent Calendar!!
Instead of gifts or candy, I thought it would be more fun (and meaningful) to fill each compartment with its own little holiday activity. I just love celebrating the little things in life, don’t you?? In between each compartment, I used small rolls of tape to attach a sheet of paper with corresponding numbers (& pre-cut slits) to the front. A very quick and simple project!
Once we start counting down the days until Christmas, we’ll get to poke through a number and do that day’s holiday activity. Hopefully, we’ll make some fun family memories along the way!
Wanna know what’s inside? Ok, I’ll share our list with you! (I’ve linked to those activities I’ve blogged about previously, and most are free or very low-cost.)
