I want to go dig out my advent calendar. I have a snowman one, made of felt (no I didn't feel it to make it felt, it's just felt~dumb joke sorry!) lol So normally I let the kids just move the snowflake to the next day in the evening and they each get a cookie before bed. This year I want to do it differently. I am thinking of putting some small, inexpensive items in a "treasure box" and have the kids pick something from the box each night. I am thinking along the lines of maybe some homemade things, small stuffed toys, or maybe cheap inexpensive things from the dollar tree/dollar store. I figure we will give the kids numbers, and each night pull a number and whoever's number we pull, they get to choose from the treasure box that night. That child won't be in the drawing the next night, so the others get a chance. So I need to come up with 24 small items to put in a treasure box. I am not wanting to put sweets in there. I am thinking maybe new scarf, gloves, hats, etc...sensible things that will last awhile and maybe a few smallish toys. If my math is right, each kid should get 6 turns at this.
