Why? Well I know there is lots to do at Christmas, but I really like advent calendars.
I like that they build the anticipation. The count down to Christmas. Tick off the days.
And they are great for kids to get their head around how many sleeps until Christmas.
Maybe if I have an advent calendar the kids will stop asking that?
So here are some ideas I've found....
Get folding -Origami Calendar from
homemade gifts made easy
Magnetic round tins from Twig and Thistle
Heaps of ideas with stationary from Omiyage
And I love this woodland scene calendar from decoideas
These would take some time to make but they look great and would be fun! Mini pinatas!
From gingerbread snowflakes
Simple series of paper cones - good one for the kids to make!Find out more at ikat bag
This interactive block puzzle one is fantastic! From kidspot New Zealand I love the way a picture appears as it gets closer to Christmas!
And I like how quick this one is! A big lucky dip grab box! From studio diy
So I'd better get making.
