My other Advent calendar idea was a series of trees. Since the calendar I made doesn’t have numbers, I wanted a way for my son to keep his count of days ’til Christmas.
Building on a changeable Advent calendar I made for my goddaughter a few years ago, I came up with this idea: a different tree in each pocket each night.
The pockets have two candies, a card with a Bible verse and carol title, and one of these trees. We read the verse, sing the carol, place the tree next to our Advent wreath, eat a piece of candy, say a little prayer, and then blow out the Advent candles.
