Advent Calendar Made of Christmas Books!
I know we're already a couple of days into December, but I had to share this ingenious idea I saw at Babyccino -- a Christmas book Advent calendar! Instead of buying a disposable Advent calendar, wrap (in recycled or eco-friendly paper) one book for each day of Advent. You can find the complete list of Christmas books used in the Advent calendar at Babyccino, or simply use this as an excuse to start a library for your kids with books of all types and themes. To keep it green, buy secondhand, used books! What a delightful way to spend each day of Advent -- reading a book with your children.
