I started thinking about advent in October. (I like to waste time worrying about things that are of no consequence) E is turning 3 just after Christmas and in the past few months his awareness of what’s going on around him has really grown so it feels like this is the year to start building memories.

I found this on pinterest. The link trail gets through to not on the highstreet  where you can buy the tags for £16. There is no way my husband would have thought that was a good idea so I got creative.


I’ve been hoarding jars all year with an idea I might use them for christmas presents. I got  the numbers from Skip To My Lou. Everything was attached together with double sided sticky tape.


I stuck snowflake decorations on some of the lids to cover up the writing etc and they were done.



Eli loves it and we hopefully we’ll be able to use it for many more years.


Over the next few days I’ll upload pictures of the contents. (I’m sure you can’t wait!)
