Hurray! I got my stuff together and managed to get my craft done in time for this months challenge.
I wanted to create an advent calendar for Madeline and Owen. Each day they get a small treat of a hersey kiss and find out our activity for the day. Some days it is a craft, other days it is a move or making cookies, and sometimes it is an event we had already planned to do.
I found a great idea from Maya*Made. I cannot find her post from last year, but she also updated with another version this year. When I saw it was made of toilet paper tubes I was SO excited. An activity that would clear out my overflowing supply. I had been saving them for something.
I modified mine a little. The original idea used fabric. Instead I wrapped my tubes in paper and ribbon. I cut and folded the bottom of the tubes to make it able to hold things inside. I strung them together in my living room and numbered the tubes. Overall it took a little longer than I had thought, but Jon helped by hot gluing the ribbon on.
Each day we look for the correct number and find out our activity. Madeline and Owen both love it. I think they mostly love it for the hershey kisses, but they also get excited about the activities as well.
