I believed this was a very cute thought, so  rounded up a handful of Christmas books that may very well be a match for your loved ones.

And even should you don’t do an entire month of Christmas books, a number of of those may very well be enjoyable to slide into an everyday creation calendar too. And in the event that they’re too massive to slot in a pocket or be wrapped simply, you may at all times make it a scavenger hunt, with a word inside that day’s quantity to ‘look beneath the mattress for a shock to learn’, and so on. We did that with a number of creation presents this yr which might be a bit too massive to be wrapped and hung from our creation calendar.

Creation Calendar Reward Concepts

  • Christmas ornaments – I did a number of of those this yr and made positive to place them towards the start of the month, so every one may very well be held on the tree and loved early.
  • Pajamas – These may very well be Christmas themed or simply common cute and comfortable pjs.
  • Mittens – This might additionally symbolize a enjoyable and festive outside exercise deliberate for the household. Like a snowball struggle or a nighttime Christmas stroll with apples cider, and so on.
  • Small puzzle (or a giant one for one thing that the entire household can get entangled in)
  • Socks – It is a sensible reward, but it surely may also be cute. Possibly vacation themed OR themed to one thing your child likes. I obtained some cat socks for Hayes final yr, for instance, bc the loves cats a lot.
  • Tub bombs, vacation lotion, and so on.
  • Yoyo – It is a enjoyable one for little youngsters (like 6-10 years previous)
  • Slippers – Once more this may very well be themed for the vacations or not.

And quite a lot of them are literally fairly cute, plus they’re tremendous inexpensive. Many are beneath $2. 
  • A wood blocks or toy set that may be damaged up. For instance, I did this with a wood fruit set that I purchased for Hayes’ play kitchen. That is the fruit set I obtained. It’s not low-cost, BUT there are 9 items of fruit within the set, so it may very well be damaged up into 9 completely different days of creation calendar presents. OR solely use a number of for creation after which embody the rest of the set as an everyday reward for Christmas or as stocking stuffers. That’s what I did.
  • Mini stuffed animal – OR make your individual. I’ve a tutorial for the best way to make a stuffed animal that’s fairly simple (and lovable).
  • Cute bandaids – One other sensible thought, I suppose. However some youngsters (mine included) actually like bandaids for some purpose, even when he doesn’t want one. So this may very well be a enjoyable little creation calendar thought.
  • Hair ties, headbands, and so on
  • Glitter pens, washi tape, beads to make little bracelets or necklaces
  • Non-Christmas books – Xmas themed books are nice, in fact. However throwing in an everyday (yr spherical) ebook or two that your baby would possibly look is at all times enjoyable. You possibly can additionally make customized board books in your kiddo, if in case you have some additional time. Hayes LOVES the board books I made for him a few years in the past…. I believe as a result of the books embody issues he acknowledges from our dwelling (and he’s in them as nicely).

I saved all of the household actions for weekends and days I knew we’d all be accessible and round all day. And smaller actions / presents round the home (like small craft undertaking days, books, and so on) on the weekdays. And any ornaments or the delicate objects (like Christmas books), I attempted to place towards the start of the month so we’d have extra time to get pleasure from them.

As soon as every thing was deliberate out, I wrapped every reward, added a bit tape, and set them apart for tying string (subsequent step).

I hung our creation calendar on a peg rail (from this Etsy store) that we now have within the kitchen already and added some garland and ornaments to make it really feel extra festive. Already had each available from adorning different elements of the home.

I’m all about conserving it easy in the case of these items although.
