I wanted to share with you an easy advent calendar…the kiddos can make the bags…and then you fill them with a little surprise. The best part is you can reuse them every year! Just a couple supplies from the craft store is all you will need….maybe a little craft to keep the kids busy while you make turkey?!?! All good :)

I printed on some vellum paper the numbers and cut them out. Just a dot of glue will hold it to the bag.
I used little bags from the candy making section of Michaels. A little rhinestone sticker placed on the top for some sparkle :)
A hole punch and some ornament hangers and you are good to go!
Hang from a tree, garland, doorway…wherever :)
Do you have any traditions like this to share? We would love to hear them !!
