Today for our Home for the Holidays celebration each Simple Living Media channel is featuring some of our favorite links to help you with this year’s holiday preparations. I’m talking about Advent and some simple ways to count the days before Christmas.
It doesn’t take too many days of using an Advent calendar for even young kids to start to understand the idea of a count-down. The simple, repeated act – be it opening a drawer on an heirloom calendar to reveal a surprise or tearing the next link on a paper chain every day – is a fun way for kids to mark the passage of time.
Are you looking for some ideas for observing Advent this year? I’ve rounded up 20 of my favorite ideas for you to choose from.
