Every door in our advent calendar contains a little note. A cryptic messages as to where the children might find their treasure.
This year I am using my Girl's Loft kit to make each gift special.
chocolate gold coins (gelt)
character band-aids (my kids love these)
Crayola tub tints
sprinkles and cookie cutters
gingerbread house kit
Check the dollar bins and Target and Michael's. They always have a bunch of fun stuff. Also, coupons for ice cream go over well in our house.
You got some ideas? Let's hear them! Like I said before, I'm on the hunt.
I also used my Girl's Loft kit to create a paper Santa to stand sentry at the advent calendar. We have some sneaky kids in this family.
The November kit is full of The Girls' Paperie "Tinsel & Twig" line. If you buy a kit and you would like to make your own paper Santa, email me and I'll send you the pattern.
