Tis the season for Advent Calendars. I actually love doing them but I don’t like doing the same thing every year. I like making my own and I got an awesome idea when I was in the Dollar Tree. I actually feel like I hit the awesome mom jackpot!
Oh yes I am awesome! So let me tell you what I found. I found the cutest cardboard mailbox! So I thought this year my kids would love opening an envelope every day with what we are going to do. What kid doesn’t like getting mail? So I wrote each thing down on an index card. For example “write a letter to Santa.”
There was something missing to me though. We have the fun things but we also needed the spiritual part to Christmas. It is the day we celebrate our Savior’s birth. So I found the scriptures that go along with each day and included them on the index cards. I am so happy with this 🙂
Here are some pictures. Forgive me because they are not the best. My handwriting also looks like a little kid wrote it.
