shiloh Today Kiwi Lane owner Shiloh Jorgensen inspires us with a crafty little countdown to the big day of Santa’s arrival.

Shiloh used some Bo bunny paper, a wood scroll frame, Recollections mini pockets and envelopes,  along with Kiwi Lane Tiny Tags, Tags, Tiny Holiday, Tiny Accents, Adventure, Christmas, Adorn, Tiny Strips, & Mini Photos.

Shiloh tucked little tags inside of each pocket with daily Christmas activities to help her family celebrate the season.

Lacking for ideas to do with your family? How about some of these:

  • bake sugar cookies
  • cut out snow flakes
  • make a paper chain
  • sing carols to your neighbors
  • have a holiday movie night with popcorn
  • drive around to look at Christmas lights
  • read holiday books
  • try a new recipe
  • visit Santa at the mall
  • participate in a charity drive
  • go see a musical concert
  • make homemade gifts for family
  • write letters to Santa
  • make popcorn string for Christmas tree
  • make ornaments
  • make a graham cracker gingerbread house
  • open a present on Christmas Eve
  • drink hot cocoa
  • decorate a plain stocking
  • build a snow scene on paper with Kiwi Lane templates
  • buy new Christmas jammies
  • read about holiday traditions around the world
  • bake cinnamon rolls
  • make salt dough tree ornaments
  • have an old fashioned taffy pull
  • make homemade Christmas cards

Thank you Shiloh for such a darling idea that doesn’t look like a whole lot of work and can be used for years to come.

    This is so adorable I love it. I can totally see adapting in other ways…like a work assignment list for my students. Each student would get a pocket.
