We do this! Each day of December we have an activity to do. Essentially it's an advent calendar but we don't call it that. I put each little card in a miniature stocking. The stockings are hung along our bannister. The kids get to pull out the card each day. Most are things we do anyway, but it's a fun way to organize our holiday season.
