Things to Do/Make - Everyday Advent Calendar (2016)

I know it's super dorky, but I love making these calendars. I keep thinking the kids will grow out of it, but I can't let go.

3 (Saturday) - Movie night - Suicide Squad

4 (Sunday) - Fujifilm mini-camera with film


5 (Monday) - The Oregon Trail Card Game

6 (Tuesday) - Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls & The Boys' Book of Survival (I find it somewhat annoying that so many good books have become segregated by sex, so my hope is that all the kids will dive into both books.)

7 (Wednesday) - Georgetown Glow and dinner at Farmer, Fishers, and Bakers.

8 (Thursday) - Christmas tees. [Postscript - I AM SO ANNOYED! The tee-shirts never came, even though I ordered them in early November; luckily Amazon sells similar shirts, which I could buy at the last minute.]
