The first thing we did was pick the activities that we wanted to fill our advent calendar with. Here are 40 family friendly activities to fill your calendar with. I wrote them all on our planner and then created the tags for the advent calendar. I wanted to include quotes and scriptures to keep Hubs and I in the right mindset. Then I created the countdown tag.
The next thing I needed to do was make the numbers for the actual countdown. These are chip board tags that I picked up at the store and wrote numbers on.
Then I pinned all the tags onto a bulletin board that I covered with Christmas wrap.
