Advent Calendar

Y'all this advent calendar is my favorite Christmas tradition! It keeps my family focused on the reason for Christmas and keeps us in the holiday spirit every day of December. This picture was from last year and I just love how it turned out. 

Every day we read a Bible verse from The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones and do one activity. I look forward to opening the envelope each day. As Cannon gets older I know he will look forward to these traditions also.

 Here are some of the activities from last year:
Visit Santa

Attend the Christmas Parade

Make holiday paintings

Read Holiday books 

Make holiday crafts

Bake cookies

Make a gingerbread house

Make ornaments

Reenact the birth of Jesus

Make gifts for others

Have breakfast with Santa

Have a holiday baking party with friends

 This year, I have added a whole bunch of new activities and can't wait to get started.

If you are interested in creating your own calendar here are some of the resources.
