DIY Advent Christmas Tree Calender

"The holiday season seems to sneak up on me super quick every year. My husband is 100% Polish, so Christmas in our household is one of the most festive celebrations, in other words more work for this momma. Some of our family traditions include: decorating Christmas trees, sharing a Christmas wafer on Christmas Eve before dinner (sign of love and forgiveness), singing Christmas carols, and exchanging small meaningful gifts. This year I decided to start a new family tradition by creating an Advent tree calendar filled with lots of fun activities for all to enjoy - also great for home decor! Instead of giving my kiddos more gifts and/or sweet treats (trust me they will get enough of both in the coming month and this momma needs some sleep) I decided to make it more meaningful by filling clear plastic ornaments with a variety of Christmas themed activity cards that hang on our small tree in the living room. What a great way to get the kiddos excited and involved in fun activities we can all do as a family The best part is you can personalize it and make it unique to you and your family. Materials Needed supplies.JPG Small Christmas Tree (Walmart has the best ones) 25 Clear Plastic Ornaments (Michaels has a tube of them for $10 bucks) Jute, String, Ribbon. Make it you! Clothespins. You can add numbers or write numbers right on them, put some glitter on them and make them pretty! 24-25 activity cards. You can make your own or you can find plenty free ones to download and print. Double sided tape. I used 3M indoor mounting squares because it has just the right stick. (So something not too sticky, but still sticky LOL if you get what I mean.) Pen to number your activities and add Christmas countdown. I wrote in the date and the countdown to Christmas so the kiddos could later help with the planning of the month’s activities. Scissors December calendar. Great tool to plan out what activities work for you during the week and ones to do on the weekend that need a little more time. Plastic tweezer (optional if you decide not to attach the activity card to ornament)"
