Good Deeds Advent Calendar
I debated on using wood, clothespins, thread, ribbon, or other things. I decided that simple is best and that I can still make it cute and fun.
I went with ribbons, clothespins, and paper.
I got a list of good deeds from a combination of The Happier Homemaker and 100 Days of Real Food. I added a couple of my own also.
I had some red, white, and green striped duck tape that I picked up in the dollar bin at Target. I used it to fancy up my clothespins.
I cut up red and green scrapbook paper into pieces that are about 2 inches by 2 inches when folded in half. I wrote the deeds on the inside of the paper and folded it in half.
I wrote numbers 1 through 25 on the outside and used basic Christmas ribbon to hang the clothespins onto. I hung it on the wall with push pins. Every day we will read a good deed to do and when it is done we will put a sticker on the other side and hand it up with the sticker side out.
Do you do a traditional advent calendar?
