Christmassy things: Advent

25 days of December make up the normal Christmas Advent.
12 days of December make up the Kelly Christmas Advent.
(Because I ran out of time? Because these itty bitty bags got a bit repetitive to sew? Because I wasn't sure if t-w-e-n-t-y-f-i-v-e would fit, stamped across the front of those little bags? Because I have only 12 nativity characters to hide inside them?)

Whatever the case, it looks pretty, and creates excitement in the kids every morning!
I think that's a win!



Next year, I'll hide some Christmas activity suggestions in the bags.

  1. Oh that's delightful Katherine! I loooove searching other's advent ideas... however I, without fail, seem to start that searching on like 29 Nov, so I'm NEVER organised for Dec 1. So I LIKE YOUR THINKING with 12 days of Christmas! We have not done our advent this year - I feel like a bad mummy but the kids haven't really asked about it. Next year, right?
