We do this! Each day of December we have an activity to do. Essentially it's an advent calendar but we don't call it that. I put each little card in a miniature stocking. The stockings are hung along our bannister. The kids get to pull out the card each day. Most are things we do anyway, but it's a fun way to organize our holiday season.
These melted bead ornaments are SO BEAUTIFUL! And they're so easy to make with pony beads! You can hang them on the Christmas tree, or use suction cup hooks on the window to turn them into sun catchers.
