Cooper is so excited every morning when we open the advent box of the day. He is especially enjoying the addition of some chocolates in the box.
We did have a great time making paper snowflakes earlier in the day, but I failed to take any pictures. I was pleasantly surprised by how much Cooper liked the project as he is typically not very into artsy craftsy activities. He especially liked unfolding the paper after making so many cuts to see what the snowflake looked like.
For those wondering how I made the advent calendar, it was incredibly easy. I bought the Countdown Calendar at a scrapbooking store, bought some scrapbooking paper, cut the paper to fit the boxes with the template provided, and adhered the paper to the box. The Countdown Calendar came with number stickers for each box. The most difficult part was picking out the papers I wanted. Super easy, super cute (I think) and it should last for several years. I love the fact that I can do whatever I want with the calendar and customize it to meet our needs.
