This year I decided to do an advent calendar. I thought the baby socks idea was cute but my daughter’s feet are still very small and her infant socks are even smaller so I didn’t think it would turn out very well. We went to Michael’s to look for Christmas craft materials and saw little mini stockings so I decided we would use those. I bought 25 of them, one for each day in December up until Christmas. Each day they have a little gift (or a picture of an event we will attend) and we open them after dinner. I think it is traditional to do it in the morning but I wanted my husband to be a part of this and he is home pretty late.
I used glue to write the numbers and had the babies sprinkled glitter on the glue to make them sparkle.
Then I let them decorate the back of each one.
Finally, after a few days of working on them, they are finished!
