Advent Calendar Round-up

If you are wanting to have an advent calendar this year, some of them take a little preparation. You can buy a pre-made one, or make one yourself.  The celebration of Advent is a wonderful time as a family, preparing for Dec. 25th as you count down the days until the coming of Christ.  It helps you focus on the meaning of this season as you think about the coming of our Savior daily.

Crafty mom has an Advent calendar round-up with several choice finds.

Elizabeth's fabric advent calendar is beautiful, and would be a keepsake for any traditional family.

You can wrap little boxes like this advent calendar, with ideas of things to do each day together as a family.  Get out the wrapping paper!

How about an advent calendar out of matchboxes?  This one wouldn't be hard to make.

We use a Jesse Tree for our advent celebration.  You can see our mini tree filled with 25 hand made ornaments that we used last year and are getting set-up to use this year again.
