Family Tradition: DIY Advent Calendar

Our DIY Word Advent Calendar has become one of my family’s favorite holiday traditions. I made the envelopes ages ago and now only swap out the words every couple of years to keep up with the my boys’ growing vocabulary.


Although I’m reusing our word calendar, there are so many other Advent options out there. Here’s some other cool ideas I found while surfing Pinterest.
