I love the idea of doing an Advent Calendar as a simple and easy way to keep the focus on the important things during this Christmas season. Today I am sharing 5 quick and easy Advent Calendar ideas with you.
I don't know about you, but I have never actually made an Advent calendar before. Now that my daughter is getting older, it is definitely something I want to start during Christmas with her. I also need quick and easy; as moms we are so busy I think many of us would prefer something quick and easy, but fun and memorable.
