Creative Advent Calendars

Happiness Project : Week 11

It makes me so happy to see my kids wake up each morning and run to their very own handmade advent calendars and open their box to see what they will find. This year the kids made their own creative advent calendars.

They drew 25 boxes on a piece of paper and then traced them onto another paper. On the first paper they drew a Christmas picture of their choice on top of all the boxes. Then they put numbers on each box. I did Pilot's numbers.
On the second paper they drew little pictures in each box.

Jetta put elves and starts and happy faces in her boxes while Pilot put presents and people in his.

I took an exact o knife and cut three sides of each box on the first paper and then we taped the papers together.
Each morning the kids open one box and count the days until Christmas.

I have never thought about having my daughter make her own Advent Calender. Definitely going on my list for a project next year!

The ones that your kids did turned out great! I love them.
