Woo hoo! It’s December 1st, which means Christmas is officially right around the corner. Usually I wouldn’t be this excited, because most years I’m at a complete loss with my Christmas shopping, but for once, I am way ahead of the game (I mean, 75% of my presents are already wrapped). So, with all that free time, I decided to make a cute little advent calendar for the kids to do. Anything that needs glue is a big hit with the kids, and I’d seen a few of these floating around pinterest and decided to draw my own.
Each day, just have the kids glue a cotton ball onto Santa’s beard. On Christmas Eve it’ll be completely filled in. I would say that this is a great alternative to the chocolate advent calendars, but who am I kidding. In this house it isn’t Christmas without those. This is just a fun thing for the kids to do, and another way to hopefully get them to stop asking “How many more days until Santa comes?!?!?!”.
