Scrapbook Paper Advent Calendar

While we don't celebrate the Advent calender in the traditional way, we use it as a countdown to Christmas, I am calling it that because that is the way most people know it.

I saw this on pinterest and loved the idea of scrap paper and all the fun embellishments that come with it. So here it is! I think that I will still add some more doo-dads, I love me some doo-dads! (yes, doo-dad, that is the technical term for embellishments) 

I have crafts like a making an ornament and paper snowflakes. We are going to do a couple of service project such as care packages for the troops, toys for tots, and a giving canned food.
I really want them to appreciate the holiday as a season of giving not getting, so one day is making Christmas cards for a family member, another is picking out a gift for the other sibling, and helping make our neighbors Christmas candies.
We will also read Christmas stories, watch the Polar Express, and we are doing Elf on the Shelf this year!

I can't wait for December so I can start the fun!!!
