Happy December 1st! Can you believe it’s almost Christmas? I’ll be sharing a few little traditions we do this month and today I’m starting with our advent calendar. The kids love counting down the days until Christmas and they always get excited to have a little treat each day. A few years ago I decided to add a little something to it, they still get a treat but there’s also a little paper for each day that tells the kids what they get to do that day. It can be as simple as pay your friend a compliment at school, do a good deed, or a traditional thing like making a gingerbread house or watching a Christmas movie as a family. I love watching my kids do little acts of service and hearing how great it made them feel after. Let me know if you have any questions, I posted some of our to-do’s that go in our calendar (I left out a few surprises in case my kids see these pictures).
Hope you have a great day!
**I purchased the red and white striped bags from Target and used a gold Sharpie paint pen to write the numbers. It doesn’t show up very well in the pictures but looks great in real life. The blanket and pillow are also from Target.
