This is always such a hit in our home, that I wanted to be sure to mention it to y'all again this year....
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. ***(It is SO nice to have at least ONE thing ready to go!!)***
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.
