We have a little Advent Calendar that hangs in our kitchen. Starting December 1 the kids take turns pulling out a little Christmas ornament out of one of the pockets and counting the days left to Christmas. I love this little tradition. The kids love it too. They like to see what each new one is and count how many there are, it builds the excitement for them.
If your a knitter like me you will like this. Lime & Violet have an Advent Calendar for knitters going on the Daily Chum. Just click once a day until Christmas. Enjoy.
