Craft Night!

Friday night we had a girls craft night and made these cute Christmas advent calendars. We used mini-muffin tins and for each day in December up to Christmas-Eve you look behind the number and find a scripture and and activity to do on that day, and maybe even a little treat! It's still not completely finished. I still need to punch holes in the muffin tin and tie ribbon to it so I can hang it on the wall. After making this I'm really starting to get excited for Christmas time. I'm so excited for when we have our own kids to do activities like this with and start our own traditions.

I got the muffin tin at Wal-Mart for $4.50 and then my friend Tonii has a cricket that we used to cut out all the circles and #'s out of fun scrapbook paper. We got lots of fun ribbon, brackets and buttons to decorate with and then just used those adhesive magnets for the back. Tonii had the scripture and activity page that you use to put behind the #'s. If you make one and want it, let me know and I can email it to you!
