You can get creative this holiday season by creating your own Advent Calendar! Last year, our family started a tradition with our rustic advent calendar and the 24 activities we did as a family in the days leading up to Christmas. We had so much fun making memories last year, we decided to carry on the tradition, and add in even more activities!

Here is our list of activities that we are planning to do each day this December. Some of the activities are simple, some of them require a little bit more planning, but all of them are something fun for the kids to look forward to as we celebrate the Christmas season.
