This year, we decided to hang the calendar on the far wall of our kitchen right next to Taylor's dry erase board, a place she is certain to visit every day. For those of you searching for a practical yet fun gift for your little ones, this easel is one of Taylor's favorite gifts ever. It has a dry erase board on one side, chalkboard on the other, and it also holds a paper roll which is perfect for crayon and marker drawings. It retails for like $15 at Ikea making it a cheap and useful toy that your little ones are sure to love!
I should note that we also have an Elf on the Shelf, but Taylor could care less about him so he is perched on our fireplace and will likely remain there until Christmas is over. Hopefully, we'll start that tradition next year, but for now the advent calendar will have to do. Besides, we all know that I'll never remember to move that thing every night anyhow.
Happy holidays, everyone!
