My sister gave me the idea of wrapping up books as an advent countdown. We put away our Christmas books during the year so they are like new to my little ones when we unpack them each year. So I wrapped up the current stack, added a few new ones, numbered them, and put them above their advent service list. Since we already read books each night, this is a fun twist to December. Some of them are advent books and some are just children’t Christmas books. (Found the wrapping paper from Waiting on Martha)
Here are 10 other advent calendar ideas I thought were really clever:

Scandinavian advent calendars are my personal favorite:)
Any others to share? Have a happy December weekend!
