Unique Advent Calendar
Via: http://babyccinokids.com/2009/11/29/christmas-book-advent-calendar/ and a Tumblr blogger.
If you want a unique Advent Calendar to enjoy with your children this is the one.
You will need 24 Holiday Books! YIKES!
For suggestions and to begin the collection look at babyccinokids. They have a bookshop on the site that will give you some ideas to start you off.
At Amazon you can even purchase some books inexpensively if they are used and perhaps you have some from your own childhood collection.
Each day you unwrap a different book from the “Advent Calendar” and that is the book that you read to your child or children that evening.
It is simple and sweet.
The wrapping is what I think is the most work in this project. Inexpensive tissue paper would be all that is necessary. I personally dislike wrapping but the rewards of wrapping are worth it here.
I loved the Advent Calendars that we used to have but this one seems like one of the all time best ideas yet.
If you have more than one child it is perfect as there are no candies or little toys that need to be shared.
