Pinterest Advent Calendar--25 Days of Christmas

I love using Pinterest to bookmark great ideas that I want to try so I have a huge holiday pinboard.  I was worried that I wouldn't get to all of the great activities that I really wanted to do with my kids this holiday season so I wanted to have something at my fingertips to help.  I'm a planner and I love to have a list--I always get everything done when I have a list to work from so I took this idea and transformed it into a Pinterest list.  I created a seperate pinboard for my 25 Days of Christmas.  My kids and I will be doing one activity, craft project or baking project a day for 25 days.  I have printed this pinboard and put a copy on my refrigerator for easy reference.  I have also listed our 25 activities below.
Day 1--Make handprint Christmas tree painting.
Day 2--Create button wreath ornaments for our tree.
Day 3--Make Christmas tree jewel ornaments.
Day 4--Make cinnamon ornaments for our teachers and our tree.
