We never really had an advent calendar growing up. We always made paper link chains to countdown the days until Christmas. Once I have kiddos, I think I may just have to do both. I’ve been finding so many cute ideas that eventually need to be tried out!
And last but not least, this sweet calendar by Katie of Shesscrappy found via MakingMemories. She used an inexpensive cookie sheet, magnets and scrapbooking supplies for this adorable calendar. Tutorial here.
