Our Advent Calendar
Tis the Season for FAMILY
If anyone thinks for one minute that I am crafty enough to make this..think again..my talents lie in cleaning and organizing, remember?
I found this at a craft fair and knew it would be perfect.
The plastic pockets are great for tiny treats, notes, or a small Christmas ornament to move each day.
This year we are trying to be more centered on Jesus Christ, so each day they will remove one of the notes and on the back will be one scripture to read, and one fun thing to do as a family.
Here are the days, if you wish to use kind of thing for your advent calendar:
