Does the thought of Christmas traditions warm your heart? Does the anticipation of December make your heart skip a beat? Me too! Thanks for joining me for another Make It Monday post! I hope you’re ready to talk about having a Creative Christmas!

Last year I taught a class making a gorgeous Advent Calendar Banner and Mini Book. I couldn’t wait to recreate it this year with fresh papers from the 2014 collections and add new activities to the list! I fell in love with this Carta Bella “Christmas Time” collection and jumped right in… what’s not to love about those cute papers, right?! Then I decided to make my own numbers to punch out and use with the banner pennants and had fun making those digitally!

    I love the Advent calendar banner! I am a teacher in a Catholic school and Advent is such a special time. My favorite Christmas season was when I did a “living Advent calendar” with my first grade class. Each school day in Advent we did a mini (some not so mini) service project together–all ideas the students came up with! Some were simple like bringing coins for the poor box and making holiday cards for soldiers, one day we sand Christmas carols at a nearby retirement home, and one of the most memorable projects was making sandwiches to donate to a local shelter. It was a great way for the children to experience the season of giving!

      What a wonderful experience you provided for those children, Momo! I love to hear it! And I have a huge amount of respect for you being a teacher, particularly in Catholic school! To teach children, the future leaders, not only the expected academics, but also about the Lord and how to share time, talent and treasure, it truly warms my heart! Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day!

      This is beautiful! My 16 year-old daughter still loves moving the star from pocket to pocket on our Advent calendar! This is definitely a wonderful tradition to start with your little ones!
