Christmas Things I Love

Saturday December 6, 2008

I have been on the hunt for a good advent calendar for a long time.  Last December, I saw something I liked, but it was $40 and I hoped to find it on clearance after the holidays.  It never went on sale, and since I haven’t see anything else I like as much, I decided to pull the trigger this year.

This is what I got:

Kurt Adler Nativity Advent Calendar

Kurt Adler Nativity Advent Calendar

I got it at Constructive Playthings and I love it.  Although it’s made in China (what isn’t) it appears to be solidly constructed — much higher quality than the advent calendars at Target (which were cute, but flimsy).  Each door holds a little magnetic figure and the nativity scene is magnetic.  The kids take turns each day opening their box and placing the figure on.  They aren’t concerned about getting everything perfectly placed (see the stars and sheep, for examples) but they love to look at it and move the pieces around.

Another thing I love — it has been a great motivator for getting up and getting dressed each morning!
