The Real Count Down to Christmas is ON!

Even though I've been counting down to Christmas since August! This is my absolute favorite time of the year! The thing I like the most has to be advent calenders. There are so many different ways out there to do advent calenders. This is the one we use that I made three years ago:
 

Here's a close up.


Each day has a little tag in it with a different activity to do. My kids love this so much that come January they are still asking me what the activity of the day is. This gives my family a way to do all the Christmas traditions we love and keeps us organized at the same time.

 A great craft blog that I love to read ( C.R.A.F.T. ) has rounded up a bunch of creative advent calenders. Check them out at Advent Calender Roundup #1, Advent Calender Roundup #2, and Advent Calender Roundup #3

That is super cute!!! I love how you have a different activity each day instead of treats or gifts like many other advent calendars.
