Match Box Christmas Countdown

For those that have missed seeing this Christmas advent that I made a couple of years ago, I wanted to re-post it so you could see it. My kids absolutely love it.

Found the match boxes at the dollar store, emptied them.

I then embellished the boxes and added a strip of paper inside each box with a scripture and an activity to do that day. I also put in a little candy inside the box. Hershey Treasures and
Hershey's miniatures work great. For the numbers I used stickers, stamps and the cricut.

I glued a magnet strip to the bag of the boxes and painted the cookie sheet.

I then mod podged "December" onto the cookie sheet, punched two holes with my cropodile, and tied a bow to the top.

It's a little time consuming, but well worth the work.
