15 DIY Advent Calendars

As a child, I always loved the little chocolate advent calendars. I looked forward to opening my number every single day, and have passed that tradition down to my kids.  This year, as I spotted my first chocolate calendar for sale – I thought, maybe this will finally be the year that I make our own family advent calendar. Something a little bit more special to help us celebrate the season as a family, making memories together. So for some inspiration, I did a little looking around and found some favorites…
