2010 Advent Calendar

I've been looking forward to Charlotte being old enough to go through an Advent calendar since her first Christmas. And now, we've reached the age where she is! Yay!

I put this calendar together by using scraps of Christmas paper, poster board, my own ideas, and the scripture readings from My Insanity. I cut out stockings using the Ellison machine at my local library. On the back of each stocking is an activity for the day that is Christmas themed as well as one of the scripture readings I linked above. Each stocking is just taped up and can be pulled off each day to read.

This is a simple calendar. That is what suits us best during this stage in our lives. I think the real important part is taking time each day to impart the real meaning of Christmas to my children.

Do you use an Advent Calendar? What do you include in yours?

  1. What a great idea! I do not use an advent calendar, but was thinking about starting this tradition. I think I might have to do this now! Thanks for sharing!
