One of our favorite things about this time of year is looking at the various advent calendars available these days. We had a simple one growing up but never failed to thrill us each morning when it was time to check that day's pocket for goodies.
There isn't much we don't like about this advent calendar by Noix de Coc'. Each box is made of cardboard and comes with a wooden stick that closes it up, securing the treats inside. You can line them up on a window sill or mantel or hang them like a garland. Each box has two blank sides that the kids can customize. We found thsi one at Bodie and Fou but this looks like a great DIY project to do with takeout containers like these.
