Ever since we took down our Christmas decorations, I haven't been able to get my mind off the awesome advent calendar that my sister Susanna made my kids for Christmas. Every day before December 25th, O and H got to look in a bag for a little treat, and it was so much fun for them. They got toys, stickers, stamps, suckers, you name it, and Susanna included it. I really liked how it also served as a good motivator for them to do things like get dressed in the morning and pick up their toys.
So I've been thinking about making a new advent calendar for Valentine's Day. I came up with these, which are much simpler than Susanna's masterpieces, yet hopefully will still be fun. We'll start the countdown on February first.
