Advent Idea: A Simple Gold Box To Hide

Advent Idea: A Simple Gold Box To Hide

Oooh, a gold box! It's shiny and just waiting to be untied! Are you as excited as I was to see what's inside? It's a great little advent idea that is sure to have your kids on the hunt for the box each and every day through advent. Take a peek...

We checked in with Delia over at Delia Creates as she's been busy formulating all sorts of fun holiday advent ideas. She talks about things from giving different holiday books each day, and packs of gum, but my favorite idea was this simple gold box. What's inside? Well one of three things, though potentially all of them depending on the family schedule for the day.

A treat
A fun activity to do that day
An act of service

Each day Mom puts a little note or treat inside the box and hides it somewhere in the house. It's a race each morning for the kids to find it and see what's inside. We think it's a great way to have the fun of an advent calendar without being married to any one idea, allowing you to go with the flow of the holiday season and what it brings into your lives each day. You can read more on this idea and a few others over at Delia Creates.
