I love Advent calendars. The countdown to Christmas is just so much more fun when you get to eat a chocolate every day, isn'it?
Using Winter Frolic, I cut out the trees on cereal box cardboard and then again on regular cardstock and glued the pieces together. I used Plantin Schoolbook to cut 24 ornaments for each tree, and then let Abi and Luke write their own numbers from 1 - 24. We then stuck 24 Hershey's kisses to each tree using pop-dots. Every day, they get to take one kiss off and put the "ornament" for that date in it's place. The tree toppers are my favorite part. We used one of the many beautiful digis from PCW. Abi and Luke each coloured their own, cut them out, and voila! The angel at the top of the tree (who is holding the chocolate treat for Christmas Day - the kids' idea). And can I say, the fact that the angel is a bear was a HUGE hit with my kiddos! :)
