Growing up, we always used to get those chocolate advent calenders. Yum!
But since my kids are so young, and a little bit of sugar
makes them go bonkers goes a long way with them, I wanted to do something different to count down the days until Christmas.
I used the tree template, then made the decorations by cutting out a bunch of 1 inch circles and a 1.5 inch star with the George cartridge of my cricut onto scrapooking paper. I modge podged a piece of scrapbooking paper onto a cheap cookie sheet that I got at the dollar store, then modge podged on the tree.
Then I numbered the decoration pieces, laminated them, and hot glued button magnets onto them.
Voila! A magnetic tree decorating advent calender that we can reuse!
How does your family count down the days until Christmas?
