So now that you have some springboard ideas of what to include in the advent calendar, here are some of my ideas for simple Advent calendar: drawers (this is what we use: you can fill it with candy or activities), ornaments (use a label on each to designate activity), box with popsicle sticks (box from Target dollar section; write activities on popsicle stick – doesn’t take very much space), and paper link (activity on each link; this is great for perceptualizing how much time until Christmas and is very inexpensive)
I hope you are inspired! I want to hear what you guys do for fun during the month of December too – please let me know in the comments section; I am always looking for more great ideas. Got a cool advent calendar – I want to see it! Leave me a link in the comments section.
No matter what you decide to do, now is the time to begin planning & preparing so you are ready to roll it out December one!
