The Story Book Advent Calendar Idea has been floating around Facebook for a while now. I am just finally giving it a try myself. I know HOW could I JUST be hopping onto this trend when we love books as much as we do… Time, Patience… Will to wrap storybook after storybook is most likely the reason. The kids loved the BookRoo unwrapping so much I could not resist.
What is in our storybook advent calendar.
We used mostly books we already had in the house because that was the easiest for me to pull off this year.
What the kids think
Today is day one and they love it. They unwrapped Winter Days in the Big Woods. This selection was a great recommendation from Mother Good Time last year. The three youngest girls love this story. They pretend they are the girls in the story. The kids are excited to see what books we wrapped up and explore a new one each day leading to Christmas.
How I will do the storybook advent calendar for next year.
I will wrap the Christmas ones again after Christmas for next year and the winter ones when they get bored with them so all I have to do is pull the box out on December 1st. I plan to swap a few books out for next year and grab the Polar Express DVD to wrap with the book as an extra surprise.
