Advent Calendar for My Kids

Guest post written by Angie Reese

I had never even known what an advent calendar until I got to college and saw one when I was out shopping with my friends. Once I realized that I got to eat a piece of candy every day from it, I bought one and have been buying one every year since then. But now that I have kids and want to share an advent calendar with them, I didn't want to give them any extra energy in the form of candy.
I decided that I would just make one that I could reuse every year from now on. I went online to look for some ideas or directions that I could use to make my own and while I was doing that I saw the website Then I changed over our internet service at home to it after I read through all of it.
I finally picked this one DIY advent calendar that I thought looked pretty easy to make. I'm going to put slips of paper with fun Christmas activities on them for my kids to do, which will keep them occupied for at least a little time each day.
