Advent Calendar!

Yes, I know it is still September, but I like to be prepared!! I have been collecting fun little things for his advent calendar since everything went on clearance last year after Christmas! I did a lot of searching for ideas of things to put in advent calenders and couldn't find many pictures, just lists of things. So I decided to take pictures of what I found...these ideas may not work for everybody since some calendars are much smaller but these were perfect for the old Coke crate we use! 

This is last years picture, just so you can get an idea of what it looks like all put together. We start with 24 and see whats inside, then take the item out, and I put the card with the number face down in its little cubby. Last year I just did all Little People, he liked it but I think this year will be much more fun!

the treasures!

I'll just list left to right: FIRST ROW-  little plastic Christmas book (walmart), bendy Santa (walmart), Mickey (dollar tree), grow a penguin (Hobby Lobby), grow a pig (Hobby Lobby), Goofy (dollar tree), SECOND ROW- snowman playdoh (ebay), Cars socks (Target), slinky (walmart), Toy Story keys (walmart), bendy snowman (walmart), sponge farm animal beads (dollar tree), THIRD ROW-  Minnie (dollar tree), Toy Story anti-bac (dollar tree), Tree playdoh (ebay), Donald (dollar tree), Cars socks (Target),  little plastic Christmas book (walmart), FOURTH ROW- Toy Story Zing Ems-Woody, Buzz, Jessie, Rex, alien (these are SOO cool!), slinky (walmart)

the Zing Em's close up :)  These came in a whole pack at Dirt Cheap for around 2 or 3 bucks...If you live in the South, you must go to Dirt Cheap, it will change your life!! hehehe!!

This was so fun for me to do! Some of the things were left over from his farm birthday party, most was from Christmas Clearance last year (me and my sister spent a whole day deal finding, it was soo fun!), and the rest is from Dollar Tree. Can't wait for December 1st!!!
