Christmas Advent Calendar

It's that time of year again, Fabulous Friday is just around the corner. We have many different and fun fun activities planned. The Christmas Advent calendar is just one of them. I will be teaching this class. Using a mini cupcake pan, magnet squares which was donated for the cause, scrapbook paper and doo dads. This is what I came up with. Underneath each piece of magent square will be a little prize for the kids.

I wanted to drill holes and be able to hang this up on the wall using some fun Christmas ribbon. However seeing that these pans run about $9.00 a piece I decided not to. I will place it on top of our entertainment center using an easel. I will keep the magnets in a bag stored in my Christmas bucket so that I can still use the pan year round. Halloween is such a big holiday in our home I think I'll be doing the same thing for the upcoming holiday.

Oh sister Heaton it's so cute!! I noticed on the handout for fabulous friday you dont have anyone to babysit. Could I babysit for you and the other sisters? And, if I pay for the materials could I make some of the crafts too? I have to learn a home arts skill for personal progress. Thank you!!
