This year we are starting all kinds of new traditions and one of them is an Advent Calendar. I had originally wanted to do a DIY with a paper mâché box from Hobby Lobby but I was a little too late to the game so I decided to go with this one from Target. It’s super cute and definitely gets the job done for this year and many more years to come. This fun idea will definitely become a tradition we do forever.
I had plans to put little toys in it but when I was grabbing the candy, I couldn’t find any so I just grabbed some more candies and these cute Elf on the Shelf gummies. I filled each day with some candies and then on certain days, I wrote a little note that they will get to do something fun with mommy like making Santa Munch. On Christmas Eve, there’s a note that says that we will make cookies for Santa and then on Christmas Day we will all make Christmas breakfast together.
This is such a fun tradition that I can’t wait to continue and to grow into even more fun memories.
