Christmas is right around the corner.  As soon as Thanksgiving passes next week, then the mad rush for the holidays will be in full affect. Are you ready? Even though the holidays will be different this year, people are still planning to buy gifts to send or drop off to family and friends. And, kids will be looking forward to starting their advent calendars come Dec. 1st.  If you are looking for a fun advent calendar that can be used year after year, then do I have a wonderful one for you -- "Christmas is Coming! An Advent Calendar." 

More about this advent calendar book:

"Every day of December brings a delightful new Christmas tradition in this keepsake advent book. Each flap on the cover of the book reveals a clue to a festive activity that can be found inside the pages. It might be a recipe for a delicious homemade treat, instructions for a cozy craft, a game to play, a carol to sing, or a beautifully illustrated story to read with the whole family. This inviting twist on the traditional advent calendar is perfect for families who love to put their own spin on celebrating the holidays

• Offers fun-filled activity based advent calendar for families
• Designed to be shared together year after year
• Beautifully illustrated with accessible and stylish images

Fans of Once Upon a Magic Book and Cookie Advent Cookbook will love this book."

This advent calendar book is hard cover so it will last for years, and sturdy cardboard lift up flaps can be closed at the end of the season, for storing away until next year.   What I love about this non-candy and non-toy interactive calendar is that it will bring the whole family together as you open up each door to reveal a craft, activity, game, recipe story or more to enjoy together.  Once you reveal the day's surprise, you open the book and read the instruction for completing the holiday-themed activity.   Parents will want to read through the pages and make a list of the supplies they will need to purchase or gather up, so when each day arrives, you can jump right in and complete the activity with your child, and not have to put off as you don't have a craft supply or ingredient for a recipe.  

I have already gathered up all the supplies needed to complete all 24 days of advent fun, most of which I had in the pantry or in our craft stash.  I can't wait for Dec. 1st to get here so that the girls can start using this advent calendar.  The first activity is to write a letter to Santa.  And, come Christmas Eve, we will get to read "Twas the Night Before Christmas," before we all head off to bed.  This really is a well put together advent calendar book, and has activities that kids of all ages and adults will love doing together. It will bring your family together and get you all excited to count down on Christmas Day.
