So when I saw this...
|Cassie's Cute Advent Calendar over at "Hi Sugarplum"|
... I immediately knew that this would be the type of Advent calendar I could do and try to tweak into my own version in the very limited abount of time I had - like 2 days before Dec. 1st?!:-)
So, by using these...
|Old Magnetic White Board|
|Some Magnets & Favor tins from "Hobby Lobby" + a Paper Mache' |
I came up with this...
You may be thinking where the numbers are right? Well they are inside, at the bottom of each tin!
|And on the flip-side, I placed small notes from Mom and Dad about the type of gift they'll be getting for that particular day!|
|I Then added the candies.. ( M& M's and Cadburry)|
|Here it is with all the gifts for all 25 days|
Most of the gifts are just candy and fun knick-knacks from the Dollar Store, but I think they will enjoy opening and finding out what the gift for the day is. :-)
My little one was the most excited when he saw this and opened the first tin early in the morning!
Thank you so much Cassie for sharing this wonderful idea!!!
