I was so inspired by Ali Edwards and her blog post last year:
Advent Action Cards

As Ali said:
For each of the daily sentiments I wanted to head in the direction of answering this question: what things that can help our kids look beyond themselves and celebrate the season. That was my initial focus.”

Well it inspired me! The year before I had began a craft from Martha Stewart using Ikea spice jars, templates from Martha and glitter to create advent boxes. After seeing Ali’s advent action set I combined the two to make a wonderful new tradition in our home. I printed Ali’s advent cards on cardstock and then spray adhesive on Christmas Glitter Specialty paper to strengthen the cards and match the spice tins.
We’re already looking forward to starting again next month!
