Advent Book Basket

This is a great idea I picked up several years ago. 

Start with 25 Christmas/Winter themed Books.  (You'll be surprised how many you actually have!!!)
(Half Price Books is a great place to pick up some inexpensive Christmas books to fill in your collection.)

Let your child (or children) open one a day until Christmas! 
We've accumulated so many that each of my boys can open a book each day!
They enjoy seeing favorite books from years past and discovering new ones I've added to the collection.

When Christmas is over, I use the left over gift wrapping scraps to wrap the books for the following Christmas.

I also keep my daily advent activity book in the basket...that's just so I can easily find it among the rest of the chaos going on! 
My sincerest wishes to each of you for a joyful and blessed Christmas season.

Be sure to stop back by Dec 5th thru 11th
for the last Pretty Packages Party of the year!

Love that idea! I used to buy my children a new Christmas themed book every year for Christmas and read it to them Christmas Eve. Now that my kids are grown, I hold those books near and dear to my heart each holiday season. I am now starting to accumulate grandchildren...LOL I would like to use your idea to start a new tradition with them! :) Thank you for a wonderfully creative idea!

That's an excellent idea! I wish I'd seen this when the kids were little.

What a great idea! I love bringing our seasonal books out in a big basket near the sofa so they're available for a quick read, but I never thought of wrapping them.
