    I made my own advent calendar two years ago. Square pockets made of green felt lined-up to look like a Christmas tree witha star on top. For each day of the countdown, I'll put a different chocolate or candy, one for me and one for my husband. Countdown starts Saturday, can't wait!

    1. Elmo: 24 square felt ornaments to go on a felt tree.

    2. Santa: computer print off with 24 circles to glue cotton balls on for Santa's beard

    3. Nativity: computer print off of Holy Family with 24 stars to color in

    We have 4 books with advent readings for the whole family. Three of them are stories written by Arnold Ytreeide, Jotham's Journey, Bartholomew's Passage, Tabitha's Travels. You read more of the story everyday from the beginning of advent (Dec 2 this year) through Christmas day.

    My website also has an advent calendar - It's a radio program that first aired in 1937. The story begins tonight (November 29) and goes through Christmas Eve. It's a great little story. You'll enjoy it.

    I saw an idea online, I think it was on Pinterest probably. Use a muffin pan that has 24 holes and cover each hole with paper or fabric, you could even put a treat in each hole! I had the muffin pan, and was numbering the circles I cut out, on the pan, and I skipped number 11.....
    So, I scrapped the idea.
    Someday I would like to do the advent with the candles...

    Over in Germany every kid has an advent calendar....I might buy one with pictures for myself...not sure yet......Kandice has this Playmobil Advendskalender [​IMG]

    There is a background out of paper that the kids can used to play.....and each day a new piece will come might be just a crown for a fairy princess or an animal....and on....they have it as Santa´s workshop (kandice had that last year), priates and on.

    I just bought my first one! I was surprised at how hard they were to find, only our local Target seemed to have them. This one is cloth and in the shape of a Christmas tree, a little wooden candy cane on a string goes in each pocket. I'm going to put a Hershey Kiss in each day, we can talk about Jesus and then my son can take out the Hershey kiss and replace it with a candy cane each morning. Can't wait!

    Our Advent calendar is a Christmas tree painted on a board in a wood frame. You hang wooden toy ornaments on pegs all over the tree. The toys are stored in the bottom of the frame behind pasteboard "1-23" doors. The 24th, a wood star outline slides over the solid portion at the top of the tree.
