j is still a bit young to totally understand the idea of an advent calendar, but he’s loving that he gets to open a box every day to see what’s inside!

the first week was filled with so-not-creative no-sugar lollipops since we were busy party-planning, but this past weekend i finally got it together to add some meaningful things to the mix.

the holidays class i recently took had us list all the activities that we’d like to do in the month of december. i basically just typed those activities on cardstock and cut them out. very easy. next year, however, i think i’m going to print them out on super cute labels like dandeedesigns.

other days include a treat coupon that i downloaded from jenn. super easy and andrew and i could decide on a healthy treat for j.

but loads and loads of ideas can be found here.
