crafting with grandma - Fun, Excellent & Inexpensive Gifts - Advent Calendars!

As you know, since I've said it a time or two :-), I LOVE to celebrate Christmas! At my house the tree goes up after Thanksgiving dinner and then gifts go under it. Each time my grandsons are at my house between Thanksgiving and Christmas, they get to open a gift! Like I said, I LOVE to celebrate Christmas!

These gifts are small items - in the past I bought nine-packs of Matchbox cars for $5 at a local outlet store, I gave them books, and crocheted a few things for these special early gifts! I also made a few treats; such as homemade lollipops to put under the tree for early opening - we will see what I do this year!

So, I looked on-line and found a link for 41 great ideas for making Advent calendars, I thought it would be fun to share with you so you could make something to give your grandchildren something simple, fun, and inexpensive which they could open each day to count down to Christmas! What a fun gift to put under your tree and delight them with the opportunity to open it early . . . and then find a small treat each day until Christmas!

If you follow this link you'll find the 41 ideas for making your own Advent "calendar"-type gift . . . I especially like the paper boxes, the Christmas lights, and the blessings sticks - maybe I will make one for each grandson.

So, what do you think? Which one do you like the best?
