Just in time!

Friday night i finally finished my advent calander that i made for my kids. Sorry no pics! Im not that computer savy yet. I used 24 altoid tins and i spray painted them red. I then stenciled in silver paint the numbers 1-24. I put magnets on the back but i didnt glue them on. After they open one they will turn it over. On the other side i stenciled a letter. So when all tins have been opened and turned over it will spell "Merry Christmas Emily Grace AJ." I have too many letters so 2 tins have 2 letters on them. Each day they will get a small treat inside to share such as a small bag of M&M's. The calander is on the refrigerator. They love it!
