Last year we started a new Advent tradition. As well as opening a door of our Advent calendar each day and building a magnetic picture of the Christmas story, we opened a bunch of kid’s Christmas books. The kids loved it! We read a book each night at bedtime, including some of my favourites.
This year my kids have been waiting to start this again so I have wrapped all the books again. There were a couple of books last years that were too long to read before bedtime in one night so I took those ones out of the pile and added some surprise newbies instead.
Last year I blogged each book each day so if you look back in the Archives or Search the blog you will find more information on the books. Or Try this post for the complete list:
a lovely idea! Will have to pin it for next year!
I’m glad you like it, Stephanie. It does take a little pre-planning but it was so worth it. the kids love it!
I read a lot of posts about book advent calendars last year. Love the idea. Will have to do it next year!
