Advent Calendar Ideas

Yesterday, I realized we are halfway through November. If you are going to do a little advent calendar this is the time to order the supplies to be ready for December 1. Here are the advent calendar ideas we’ve done in the past. We have a tradition of doing a little Christmas-y activity for each day before Christmas. Things like go ice skating or hang mistletoe or make spiced cider. So the advent calendar is a big deal in our house. Find the instructions and supply lists below. (I think the mini tree one is my favorite.)
