Advent Calendar

The boys and I made this advent calendar together yesterday and had so much fun doing it. Well, at least I did, they had fun making a huge mess and pestering me! But all in the name of family fun right? It was super easy to do and so much fun, now we can put our own treats in each container and the boys will get to open one container a day until Christmas. I had so much fun with it that I bought more stuff to do another one! Not sure for who yet! You can do it on a pizza (like this one) or a cookie sheet, or a plain sheet of metal, or even put the containers right on your fridge, so versatile and you can put good chocolate in it! Hope you like it!

Impressive. Are you nesting already? You'll have to post a tutorial so we can all make one too. I like it a lot!

This is great!! I am so excited to have a drawer of those containers!! Yes it finally pays to have so much junk lying around my house :)

Kara I'm with Karli post a tutorial. What a cute calendar and it doesn't really take up that much space. I love it!

You are so crafty! those are way cute, it would have been nice if your family could have left some crafty genes for the rest of us, between you and your sisters, you hoarded them all! Or maybe you just get it all from your moms side, either way I am out of luck!

I want to learn how to make one, too. Or, you are welcome to make one for me with the extra stuff you bought ;)

Kara-
Totally the cutest calendar i've seen. Great Idea. If you have time to post instructions- it would help those of us who are much less crafty. Hope all goes well with the baby. I'm excited to see her!
Love,
Becky

That is so cute. I agree with everyone else you should post some instructions on how to make it. I would love to make one.
