Advent Calendar 2017

Monday, December 18, 2017

With only one week left till Christmas I thought I better get on the Advent Calendar post I promised! Insert the monkey covering his eyes emoji here. This year I got THIS Advent Calendar and it adds the perfect amount of farmhouse charm to our home. Blair loves hearing what Christmas activity we are going to do that day and I love sharing the Christmas story with her.

Coming up with Christmas activities and breaking up the Christmas story into sections takes time so I've done the work for you below! Feel free to copy what I've done or use as much of it as you would like. Before the month of December hits I sit down and figure out what days would be best for which activities and inevitably I end up switching a few out for "hot cocoa night." ;) I try to keep things super basic during the week and we save the big stuff for the weekends like picking out a Christmas tree etc.

The activities and verses are written on small cards that slide in and out of the envelopes on the calendar.
