How to make a family commitment and advent calendar or countdown project.
Last Christmas, I set out to make teaching my children about the birth of Christ my main priority and focus. I wanted to celebrate Advent with my girls in a way that would be fun and thoughtful so a whimsical calendar was on the top of my to-do list.
First, I sewed 25 drawstring bags using fun and girly colors ( I love having two girls!) and then tied them to a string with cute ribbon and a numbered charm.
Each day of December I filled the bag with a little treat.
Some days I would include a bible verse, some days a fun activity, and then others I would put some small chocolates (their absolute favorite). There are so many ideas out there if you google Advent calendars.
