Makeshift Advent

This year the kiddos didn't want the usual 99 cent cardboard Advent calendar with the gross chocolates inside.  Neither did I, so I had to come up with something with more variety since I have a non-chocolate eater, and inexpensive.

So, off to the Dollar Store I went and this is what I came home with, a felt and glitter tree and a variety of candy "ornaments."

There is one ornament for each day of Advent and the children take turns who gets to choose an ornament off the tree as their treat.

It isn't as religiously instructive as I'd like, though before they get to choose an ornament I ask them a question about the Christmas story.
