I love Christmas. I love the season, the food, the decorations, the wonderfully awful ABCFamily holiday movies … it’s my favorite time of year.

I’ve been meaning to make an Advent calendar of fun Christmas activities for my kids for a few years now. This is probably the first year they’d really appreciate it, so I sat down and tried to figure out how to make some reasonably cute Advent tags / cards / whatever that I could print and punch out with my handy-dandy puncher thing.

I totally failed at getting them placed on the page so they’d work with my puncher thing, but at least I think they’re cute.

I’m adding them here in case anyone else would like to use them or have ideas for Advent activities. I pulled some from various lists to make my own — adding in Sinterklaas, leaving out snow activities, things like that. (I am determined to start Sinterklaas this year with the kids.) There are 35 in case I change my mind or need to swap out some ideas.

I wanted to buy these clip art designs for Jude’s first birthday party stuff anyway, so this gave me a good reason to take the Black Friday sale at MyClipArtStore.com. I love digital clip art … makes me feel like I can actually be graphically creative!

Anyway … the graphic elements are from Linda Murray and MyClipArtStore.com, but the rest was me. Click on the image to get to the bigger file … it should be an 8.5 inch by 11 inch JPG you can save to your computer, print and try to work with your own punchy-thing.
