KISSmas Tree Advent Calendar – a fun and easy way for the kids to count down to Christmas!

Every year I like to make a new Advent calendar. My kids always have a blast counting down to Christmas. This year we thought it would be fun to do a countdown on a mini tree. The kids were begging to have their own little tree, so I knew this would be a fun treat.

Each day they get to take one kiss ornament down from the tree. We have 2 kids old enough for chocolate, so I told them they’ll have to take turns. And then come and give me a kiss. Only fair, right? ;)

This was super easy to make and we had a lot of fun making it together. My kids loved writing the numbers on the tags and then hanging them up on the tree.
