For the past two years, the boys and I have put together some kind of disposable crafty advent calendar, but this year I decided I wanted something more permanent. The numbered squares in the picture above are pieces of felt that I spent all afternoon sewing together. (I have some seriously slow sewing skills...Luckily, the time-consuming nature of this project made it possible for me to finally catch up with The Sing Off. Yeah, Pentatonix!) Besides the activities listed above, each square also contains a scripture about Christ.

May the holiday fun begin!
