    Default Do you do an Advent calendar?

    This year I decided to do an Advent calendar for dd but some of them weren't really my thing. ......so I did this. Totally style this idea.1385903178108.jpg

    I wanted one with a Christmas activity behind each one rather than a toy/chocolate.

    We bought a gorgeous timber rocking horse calendar from Costco and it has little drawers. Each one contains a tiny wooden decoration for the tree. We have also added a small chocolate and a different Christmas experience each day. Yesterdays was to decorate the tree and today's was to write a letter to Santa

    Yep, pretty much the same. I got 24 mini stockings from a cheapo shop last year, I hang them all up with crafty items such as stickers, markers, glitter glue etc or a chocolate inside. Little man is rather stoked with a caramel Santa to start the day (its' ok, he is off to childcare so I don't have a sugar rush to deal with )

    Ohh I like that OP!

    My mum bought us a wooden advent calendar last year, I love the look of it, but the draws are so tiny, and as I have 3 kids, it makes it a bit hard! Last year I bought 3 small Lego sets (around the $10 mark each), and went through and divided the pieces between the draws according to the step by step instructions, and the minifigs they got on Christmas eve. They loved it! I think I will do it again this year... hmm better get onto that seeing as it's already the 2nd LOL.

    My lovely MIL got a wooden one for the kids this year and filled it with little treats and gifts- I thought it was super thoughtful. Will share a pic when free of my booby monster!!

    I still kick myself for not buying this beautiful advent calendar from the clock shop in montville. It was wooden house, decorated so beautifully , and ice never seen one as nice since

    SPG that's a fantastic idea & I might pinch it for next year (good idea it being out of reach too )

    Here's a pic of part of ours. It's 24 little rusty buckets on ribbon with numbers pegged on. Suits our old farm cottage.

    This year our babies are too young to enjoy it so it's filled with treats for mum and dad
