We currently live relatively close to my parents – but the other grandparents live in Florida. We aren’t going to be with them for Christmas this year so I wanted to do something special that would make them feel like they were still celebrating with the kids.
We made this advent calendar by doing the following:
Made 24 pictures “goodies” from the kids – these are things like; drawings, notes to “Grammy and Nonno”, maybe a poem or two, pictures of the kids, and other handmade treasures
Cut a green felt Christmas tree and glued it to a piece of lightly spray painted plywood (it’s about 10 ” x 20 ” I think?)
Used decorative tacks to attach little bags (each numbered 1 – 24) to the tree
Tucked each bag with a little surprise
I’ll share pictures of the goodies at some point…but not before they open them all. My mother-in-law might read this. 😉
