We’ve got a fabric advent calendar that we use and every day the mousie moves closer to Christmas. I saw a neat idea on the net (I think it was my montessori journey’s blog) where they put a little chocolate nugget in each pocket. We won’t do that for many reasons, the main one is that some people’s mother would probably eat all the kids’ chocolate.

This year we’ve also got a non-traditional advent calendar. We’ve started this grass hair growing panda bear and hopefully by Christmas he’ll have some hair. Jaylene’s taking a picture of it every day.
