It's a countdown to Christmas calendar. We have never used it. I don't even remember where I got it. Tween dug it out this year and hung it on the door jamb. No idea why he chose that spot. Little S was so excited about it. It was hung up a few days after Thanksgiving when we were decorating and I didn't give it another thought.
Tween has been filling the little bags every day and giving the "present" to Little S. Little S thinks that the elves fill it each night. Tween took this all on himself and has been having a blast with it. He sometimes sticks a piece of candy in it, a coin or even a little trinket.
I am so proud of him for sticking to it and for making Christmas come a little more alive for Little S.
Have your kids done something for one another recently that surprised you?
