Our 25 Days of Christmas 2012

Pin It now! For our Christmas advent calendar last year I printed out all of our activities on some cute Christmas-y paper and planned our 25 days of Christmas right after Thanksgiving. I put everything in the order that would work best for us and I made sure to keep a list of all of our activities in my notebook so I could plan ahead if needed (or switch an activity around if something popped up!).

After I had everything printed out I rolled them up and put them in our advent calendar.
