FREE ADVENT CALENDAR PRINTABLE DIY

Don't you love the anticipation of Christmas? Advent is a preparatory season leading up to this celebrated day. It has significance because it is a season of looking forward and waiting for something greater; both for the annual celebration of the event of Christ's birth, and for the time when Christ will come again. This advent calendar is a great way to bring meaning into your holiday season in the midst of the hustle and bustle. Many of these activities are great with family and friends. We'll be uploading some pics/videos of us doing some seriously silly things, so look out for some more inspiration! Highlights of Activities: • Decorate gingerbread men to look like members of your family • Make a snow globe for a place you would love to visit one day. • Wrap your gifts with recycled goods and found objects.
