In each bag is a little red piece of paper. Every other day, there is also a little green piece of paper. The red papers tells the activity for the day. The green ones tell which part of the Christmas story we will learn about that day. Some of the green papers coincide with the red ones. I was particular about which activities landed on certain days since I don't always have a hubby in the evenings. A lot of the activities we do when my oldest boy gets home from school.
I swipped some of my ideas from other websites online. Then others came from our own family traditions, or things I have been wanting to do.
The kids have loved doing this advent calendar! Even my husband gets excited about what each activity is going to be. I am so glad I made it!
