yes, we all love the book advent calendar idea that shows up on Tumblr every Christmas season but THIS!  this is the inspiration i needed and Pinterest has really been coming through for me lately!
i mean, sure, books are great and all but 24 new books each Christmas? it’s a little out of hand after year 1. so next year we’re starting this, numbered bags, clothes-pinned on a line for easy kid removal, and assorted goodies over the course of the month. maybe ornaments, maybe a book, maybe candy, maybe craft parts, maybe movies & popcorn… the possibilities are endless.
so excited for next Christmas when the kiddo is old enough to really get it.
