Our Advent Calendar Activities

(You’ll see these again starting December 1st. Look out.)

Also, there’s tons of ideas for easy and cheap advent calendars on Pinterest, even just using envelopes.  Or there’s this one at Land of Nod which is super cute for a mere $35, shipped.  Which is a really good price for a reusable fabric Advent Calendar.

These aren’t in the correct order, I’ll do that after I write them out and put them in the calendar.

  1. Nutcracker and Ginger Elizabeth’s with Amy (me) /Go shopping for a present for Mom (Mr. E and kids). Mine is better.

  1. I shall have to print out your list and compare it to my list. (Which I’ve been working on since August, I got kind of insane this year.) And yet I still haven’t made the advent calendar to put them in.

  2. Um…let me know when #9 is happening. I’m happy to help eat cookies 🙂

  3. Love this list — if you want the amaryllis to bloom by Christmas you might want to get it in soil now.

  4. Totally stealing your “activity list” idea. love it!
