on top of our christmas cards and stockings we hung our advent calendar.
velum envelopes filled with little tags.
the envelope has the number,
and the tag has the activity.
that way when you have a day that involves:
four hours in the ER-five stitches-flat tire-set of new tires-parking ticket
and a yellow crayon left in the laundry-type-of-day.
you can easily swap the "make gingerbread house" tag,
for the "sing christmas songs" tag.
other tags included:
cards, crafts, camping under the christmas tree,
try a candy cane, try apple cider, try decorating vegan cookies,
letters to santa, see santa (someone's decoration will do), see christmas lights,
make, wrap, and deliver presents,
my personal favorite... make a snowman at the beach.
