Advent Calendar // Christmas 2014

Every year we basically use our Advent Calendar as our Christmas Bucket List, each day is different activity we wish to do over the Holiday Season. Some are simple like getting Starbucks hot chocolate or driving around to see christmas lights while others are more time involved like sledding in Park City.

Inspired by Oh Happy Days simply advent calendar I created this with treat bags, washi tape, string, and number tags from Ikea. I used watercolor paper to write down all of our Christmas Bucket List activities and then sealed each bag shut with more washi tape. It probably took me about 30 minutes to put together and then another 20 to get it all hung up.

Here are some activities we have awaiting for us this Christmas;

  • Visit Temple Square to see the Lights. 
  • Perform a random act of service. 
  • Decorate a mini tree for Rivers room. 
  • Write a gratitude letter to Jesus.
  • Make Grandmas Sugar Cookies
  • Craft a Christmas star and talk about first star. 
  • Meet Dad downtown for a fancy dinner.
