Phew… I barely finished this year’s Advent Countdown in time. We’re on day 2 so I probably should have had this all done a week ago. But a week ago I was thinking about turkey and stuffing. With not much time, I went with a simple concept this year inspired by the classic lyrics “brown paper packages tied up with string…”

Every year I try to come up with a different type of advent calendar or Christmas countdown. This one doesn’t involve treats so it won’t be very popular at my house. But that’s okay – I like it.

I’m a little tardy with my advent calendar this year but this project is very simple to make and requires hardly any preparation.
It’s always fun to add little notes into your kids’ lunch bag and this incorporates the little note and the advent calendar.
Type up your advent numbers and notes. Since it’s an advent calendar, the notes are coupons good for a fun item or treat.
Wrap up an apple or other favorite fruit in parchment paper and tie it all together with twine and your advent calendar number and coupon.
Hopefully, they’ll eat the apple and save the coupon.
Let the countdown begin. Happy December 1st!

Stay tuned as we count down the days until Christmas. I have a lot of holiday projects to share with you.
