it's looking like Christmas around here...

We've been super busy...making magnetic advent calendars:


It takes alot of concentration ;)
Here's a close-up...I still need to take a picture of the finished calendars...they each picked out their own papers for the calendars.
I ALWAYS love the day that our Christmas wreath from the North Carolina mountains arrives...compliments of my Mom and Dad. It is so fragrant and beautiful!
Mom and Dad also sent this adorable magnetic nativity for the kiddos...they've had lots of fun playing with it!

I have a list a mile long of all the things we want to do this month...our calendar is full for sure!

hi ella! i used cookie sheets from the dollar tree (use ones without the nonstick coating). i attached paper with adhesive...and made different magnets by attaching a magnet strip to different stickers, tags, etc. if you google cookie sheet advent calendar, you'll find lots of examples :) hope your sweet family is doing well!

I would love to see their finished calendars! I love that they all got to make their own. Did you use preprinted calendar paper?
