My Great Idea

or Ideas I Saw Somewhere and Totally Claimed as My Own

A Cookie Sheet Advent Calendar: Painted and ModPodged a $1 cookie sheet. Made the numbers from various ‘found’ objects and from the computer. You can store the numbers on the back. There is supposed to be a calendar grid, but Aviana lost my Sharpie, and it hasn’t turned up yet.

A Book a Day for Advent : All of these are Christmas books. I picked up some at the library sale last summer, some at second hand stores, garage sales, a few from Scholastic and the bookstore: all in all, not a huge investment. When all the packages are open, it will be Christmas.

(Well, maybe; it could be a lot sooner than Christmas when they are all opened due to the fact that Brielle doesn’t totally get the concept of the Christmas countdown, only the opening.)

  1. Jessica,
    Great to see the 24 books idea is still going strong. I did that with the girls when they were younger. Now Kristen just likes to get the books out and read them herself.

  2. What a wonderful idea!! My kids would LOVE this!

    Thanks for commenting on my blog (Confessions of a Karate Mom)! I just love “meeting” new people and I’m really enjoying your blog.
