This year, I wanted to make a fun Disney Christmas advent calendar for our kids, and keep it simple. I created simple tags that could double as gift tags, and attached them to a thrifted art piece that I painted and added twine.
It turned out so cute, and the kids are over the moon excited about pulling a tag.
I found the chalkboard pins at Michaels, and wrote the numbers in white chalk pen. Then, hot glued twine on the painted art piece. The clips are top heavy and flip over when there aren’t any tags on them.
I printed the tags on cardstock, and wrote fun things we can do each day on our countdown to Christmas.
You can write whatever you want to on your advent calendars, but there are so many great ideas on Adriel Booker’s blog, but here are a few I came up with that can get your juices going:
- Read Elf on the Shelf
- Read a Christmas Story
- Make hot chocolate with marshmallows
- Watch the movie Elf
- Watch the movie Santa Clause
- Write a love note to someone in our family
- Tell everyone in your family something you love about them
- Make cookies
- Write a letter to Santa
- Dance to Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree
I added a little gold tree for the kids to add the tags as ornaments.
And as a gift to you, We’re giving away the printable tags for free. You can now download them on Lillian & Co.
We’re going to try this for our Christmas 2016.
Yay! Let us know when you do!!
