Stockings Advent

We made an advent calendar out of small baby and child sized Christmas socks that attach to twine rope with small wooden clothes pins and hang at the fireplace. Each day the children find a small note with an idea for a Christmas activity or a small treat. Many of the ideas are just for fun, but mixed in are ideas of things to do for service for someone else, like make a Christmas card, make and deliver a treat to a neighbor, write your testimony of the Savior or draw a picture of the shepherds, etc.

Great idea. Do you have a photo of this?

Yes, if you look to the right and click on the label that says advent calendars, then scroll down to Christ centered advent- there is a blurry picture of the little stockings hanging on a fireplace mantel. There are examples of activities that we put in the stockings. I should take a better picture when we dig out our Christmas stuff!
