We spotted this absolutely DARLING advent calendar on Mr Printables.com, and thought it just HAD to be shared with everyone.
It’s simple, and so cute, you can use any cute paper you have lying around. You could even do it with ribbon though you will need to line with a little paper to make a little stiff so that it will be easy to roll.
You will need:
some ribbon and string
How to make this Christmas Advent Calendar:
1. Print the pages and cut them into strips. Punch holes where marked with a hole-puncher or any sharp object.
2. Prepare 24 little treats. We’re using small sweets, some coins and strips of paper written with what treats children will have on that day. For example, ‘Mommy will bake a cake today!’
Then we’re going to roll the printed strips with these treats inside. Secure the sweets or coins with tape to the end of the strip. If it’s a piece of paper, you can just roll it up together.
3. Pass a ribbon or a string through the hole and tie a nice bow. Make it easy for children to undo.
4. You can stick them on a wall, hang them on a string, scatter them around the house… whatever you like. If you hang them on a string, they will gradually become really nice Christmas bunting!
