DIY Advent in a Jar

On Saturday it's December 1st! Do you have your advent calender yet? If not or if you are looking for a different idea to the traditional calender then how about this lovely advent in a jar that I found on Poppytalk?

It consists of little messages stuck to little pom pom balls that you put your hand in and pull out each day and each message contains a little activity (or gift you have a bigger jar.) Ideas for messages are things like"Put up the Christmas lights","Sing Christmas carols around the tree" or "Go ice skating!"

I think this is such a great idea as its a really fun way of planning activities over the holidays. Oh and the fun brightly coloured pom poms also double up as decorations for your tree!!

I do like the chocolates in the advent calendar but this is such a cute idea.
