I have it so big special items, like "go to ICE!" are on days when my husband is not working. Bean and I are also going Christmas Shopping with Gramma this month, so I put the "go Christmas shopping" on that day. Once days like that are figured out, I just filled in the blank days with the generic activities, like "color a Christmas picture". Now that it's all together I cannot wait for December 1st to get here so we can start!
The Advent Calendar we're using for this we found at the $1 Bin at Target last year. Then I cut appropriate sized pieces of scrapbooking paper, and wrote the activities on the back/white side of the paper.
