Christmas Craft- Advent Calendar

Hi peeps!  Are you ready to get this party started?  Cassie (Hi Sugarplum) is hosting today's party, so if you have a Christmas Craft to share, go HERE to link up!

I'm linking up the advent calendar I created.  I'm especially giddy about it this year because we have a little one (19 months old) to start sharing the season with and creating our own memories and traditions.

I made this advent calendar with our family in mind, and considering our child's age, but of course you can personalize it to suit your family's needs.  I printed the labels on the computer and taped them to the tags with Japanese tape.

Take a family photo in front of the Christmas tree
Sing Christmas songs
Make Christmas cards for Grandparents
Make a Christmas ornament
Color a Christmas picture 
Make paper snowflakes 
Drink hot cocoa with marshmallows
Watch a christmas movie 
Go out for a Christmas treat 
Drive around the neighborhood and look at Christmas lights 
Visit Santa Claus

Wrap a gift for your teachers
Read a story about the birth of Baby Jesus 
Make cookies for Santa Claus 
Write Santa Claus a letter
Read the book: "The Night Before Christmas"

I'm hoping to have this advent calendar for years to come in our home!
