Christmas Craft Project: Advent Calendar-- think I'll sew some small, reusable cloth bags, and find a slightly different way to arrange the clothes pins, so that there's more space for the bags. Love the idea of painting the clothes pins, though!
Santa's Beard Countdown to Christmas Calendar. Perfect for kids to work on fine motor & cutting skills. Maybe a snowman to countdown to winter/Christmas break. Or a flower or spring item with wavy lines for Spring break countdown.
