DIY Advent Calendar

Okay you guys, I have to tell you, I am so lucky to have my best friend in town this past week. This was our first Thanksgiving away from all of our family in Colorado and we were kind of bumming not getting to be with them. So, being the amazing friend that she is, she booked a ticket and came to spend her week off with us! We are so lucky!

I cannot tell you how awesome this week has been! Shopping, decorating, wrapping presents, preparing Thanksgiving dinner all on our own and she even helped me create the coolest Advent Calendar ever for the kiddos!

Guys, this was so easy, and so cheap and I am so excited for the kiddos to open their bag each day in December! We seriously spent less than $20 putting this all together! It is so easy for time to get away from you, especially during this crazy time of year so I really wanted to do something special that would help bring the family together each night, even if just for a few minutes! There isn’t necessarily a gift in each bag as much as a family activity for us all to do together! We came up with some great ideas like watching a Christmas movie, adopting a family in need and shopping for them together, decorating Christmas cookies and so much more!

I can’t wait to share with you all what activity we get to do each day!
