Year after year I am amazed at the variety of creative and beautiful advent calendars you all come up with. I've been doing advent calendar round-ups every year and these are my choices this year. Some are as easy as blowing up balloons and others you'll have to get out the sewing machine so there should be something for everyone. To see them all, check out the Advent and Countdown Calendar category here at The Crafty Crow and you'll find even more on my Advent Calendar board on Pinterest. This year I've also included seven free printable advent calendar labels to help in creating your own!
I'm happy to share these beautiful thankful crafts that would be a lovely addition to your Thanksgiving decor. Besides being a sweet peek into the minds of your kids, thankful crafts are a good way to remind them of the reason we celebrate Thanksgiving, just in case they were thinking it was all about the turkey and pumpkin pie!
The theme for this month as part of the Netflix #StreamTeam is friendship. Building friendships is an important skill in our children's lives. Learning to accept differences and celebrating similarities, empathy, and solving problems as a team, are all things that need to be learned to be successful adults. Trying to see the best in someone, or something, will put them on the road to a happier life.
"Chubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff!"
I can't think of a better friendship movie for young children than Winnie the Pooh. The animation, the voices, and the timeless stories make this a classic that will stay in your heart forever. And who doesn't love Tigger? "Glad to meet ya, name's Tigger, T - I - double guh - rrrrr! That spells Tigger!"
Grab the popcorn and celebrate the friendships in your life with these Netflix Streaming suggestions*:

*Of course, you know your children best so please use any movie and TV suggestions only as a guide and be sure to preview before sharing with your kids.
I hope you'll enjoy this #StreamTeam sponsorship with Netflix and know that all opinions and words written here are my own. I choose my sponsorships carefully and only work with companies that I like. I have been a long time customer of Netflix and was thrilled to be able to partner with them as these kinds of sponsor- ships help support The Crafty Crow. Blogging is more than a hobby for me, it's my job and part of how I support my family as a single mom so I appreciate your understanding.
I'm in love with these beautiful peg turkeys at We Bloom Here. As soon as I saw them I wanted to make them, a whole group of them actually! Using watercolors brings out the grain in the wood and it's a subtle detail that takes these from cute to sophisticated.
