So I was really surprised when my son mentioned “Next month, we will change this calendar, we will put the Advent Calendar”. He was referring to our calendar hanging at the back of the door. Waah! I thought graduate na kami sa Advent thing, hindi pa pala.
Here I am, cramming again to finish my project before December 1. Thank God for Pinterest where you can search for Advent Calendar Ideas. I've already used the old Advent Calendar for the last two years so this time, I made a new one so I don’t have to remove our calendar.
Christmas Countdown in a Box
I used the free printables of Dating Divas that I received on email. I printed the blank countdown cards so I can write my own activities. I just put labels on the old box where I will place my countdown cards. Sharing with you our activities next month.
