Yesterday was December 1, so we started our little Advent calendar at home with Lucas and I started one at school with my kids. Since Lucas is too little to understand and I can't go into great detail about the Nativity story in my classroom, we are just doing fun things:)
At home with Lucas, this is our Advent calendar. As he gets older, we'll transition into a more "spiritual" understanding of Advent, but for now just fun things are behind each door!
This year, it's bells:) I stole this from Katie! I think she did this a few years ago with her son!
Here is Lucas and I with the house:)
I'm reaching in to get the bell
He's holding it
And now it's strung on the piano! He loves to swing it and jingle it:) It'll be so fun when they're all up! We'll put today's up this evening:) Mornings are too rushed!
In my class, we have a Santa Advent. I stole the idea from Pinterest. My kids are loving it!
Here's the whole thing

It's been fun so far, and we're only two days in! Can't wait to see what the rest of the month holds!!
Have a great weekend everyone:)
