Advent Calendar

Here's a quick advent calendar I pulled together yesterday.

It's quick and easy and really cute!

You'll need:

3 kinds of ribbon
small bags (got mine in the wedding section at Michael's)
jingle bells
sticker numbers
glue gun
tissue paper
activity ideas written on strips of paper

Glue ribbon around the top of each bag.
Attach sticker.Glue jingle bells to bag.Tie a strip of ribbon to the bag. (Use different lengths of ribbon on each bag.)Now, you're ready to hang the bags from one long strip of ribbon.

We're going to open our 1st today...Decorating the tree and watching The Grinch!

You are amazing! That is so adorable, your kids are going to love it! My poor kids got the $0.99 chocolate calender from Trader Joe's. Kendal said the chocolate has a gross after taste. Maybe next year I will get creative!
