Fun Finds For Mom

It’s not too late to make an advent calendar!

If you’ve been wanting to make a calendar to count down the days until Christmas, just jump in on whatever date in December suits you. I started Dec. 6, so I only included 20 boxes. If it looks familiar, it’s because I copied this advent calendar I spotted last year on Pinterest.

I bought tiny boxes, stick-on velcro squares and round labels. Then I filled each box with a little gift. Here’s what the kids opened this morning:

Here’s a peek inside a couple of the other boxes:

I had a piece of foam core that I attached the boxes on like this:

Tonight my daughter will add numbers to the labels, and I will tuck a few more special notes inside the boxes with surprise activities. This might be a fun little tradition for the 8 nights of Hanukkah too — or at least for 7 or 6 nights of Hanukkah if you can’t get to it by tomorrow!

Happy Holidays!
