DIY Hanging Advent Calendar & Activities List

I have been wanting to to a Advent chart or something similar but I have never found one that I absolutely love and when I do find something cute it's small or not exactly what I envisioned. The best way to get something you want is to make it! I have seen the hanging advent bags and knew that was what I wanted. It was seriously so easy. The only thing I wish I would have done different is a different colored bag. It looks too much like the color of the wall. Or maybe we need to paint the walls. Ah, whatever the case, I still love it and how it turned out. I know the boys will love it!
All you need is:
25 Bags (I chose 5x7 canvas bags)
Red Paint
Paint Brush
Number Stencils
 Pretty self explanatory. Place the stencil and paint away.
Inside the bags I was going to put trinkets and items to explain the activities but there is no way the bags would stay up on the wall. I am going to print out the daily activities on card stock and place the card inside.

Here is the list of activities I came up with for the cards.
Here is what it looks like on the wall. This room has barely been touched since we moved in so it is kind of blah, I made the giant JOY letters out of moss, I have a little DIY on that to come soon!!! It still looks small compared to the room. I still think we need a mantle or something, the fireplace is just not doing it for me. 
Now to print off the activities and follow through with them!! haha!!!
A tad nerve wracking with the baby coming at any moment! 
I am going to try my best to make these all happen!! 
Wish me luck!!!
