An advent calendar is a lovely way to count down the days until Christmas. As children, we got one every year, just like Eva
It gets filled with little treats, and the kids (or grown-ups, if they are lucky :-) ) open one present every day from the first of December until Christmas eve.
This is Eva's advent calendar. I only put 12 little bags up for now (just counted them, and there are actually only 11, number 8 somehow vanished...), and once she has emptied those, the next 12 go on.
The calendar is really easy to make.
24 white paper bags
a Dymo, or a stamp, or a pen
a piece of wood
some golden string
some Christmas decorations
24 little surprises
Put the numbers on the bags, fill them, fold the top over, punch a hole in it, attach the string and hang up:
Have a wonderful day!
Lots of love,
