Since Emilia is at an age where she's starting to really get into the whole holiday thing (and because she's already asked me "When is Christmas Mommy?" way too many times), I've been on the hunt for a great advent calendar idea.
Enter Amanda Jane Jones (via the always brilliant Jordan Ferney) and her gorgeous typeface based advent calendar download (free!!! And there's one for boxes too).
I had so much fun picking out little goodies for Emilia. Fun candies, little toys (that kid loves anything little), stickers, notepads (the dollar section at Target was great for this, as was Diddams). I also included a number of little activity cards of things that she and I could do together, or that the 3 of us can do as a family.
I love it. She loves it. And she's already checked with me twice today to see if just maybe she can open them all at once. Um...nope.
It's a tiny penguin!!!
