With two young kids and full time jobs for both of us, it is sometimes challenging for my husband and I to find the time to have stress-free couple time. I decided to craft this fun calendar just for us. Since it is meant just for us, I decided to hang it from our headboard. Honestly...this was also so we wouldn't get so busy we'd forget to open one each day!!
I painted clothespins in red, white, and greens and clipped them to a red ribbon. I bought two small packs of 6x6 holiday paper from Michaels ($4 on sale) for the rest. I ended up cutting the paper to be 6x4 because I thought it looked better. The paper pack came with the numbers that I just cut out and glued to the clothespins. I decided to roll the paper, so my husband couldn't cheat and know what was coming! I even taped them!
Here's some examples of A Little Naughty...(only a "little" naughty for this post!)
As crazy as the holiday season gets, I think these activities will enable my husband and I to have a little of our own time and just enjoy each other a bit. I cannot wait for December 1st! If any of my readers do this, please let me know. Maybe I can swap out some of my ideas for yours!
*Another note: Just like I do with my kids' advent calendar, I keep a hidden list of the days in order. This way if something comes up and I know we won't have time to fit the activity in that day, I can switch it with a less time-consuming day. This is another reason why I numbered the clothespins and not the papers.
