I bought a Lego advent calender on sale months ago for Tom Sawyer. However, I didn't have advent calenders for the girls. I decided to make calenders this year. These are not "perfect", but they were very simple and inexpensive to make. The girls were so pleased to see them this morning.
A Teddy Bear Advent Calender
For Little Red Riding Hood I recycled her pin the nose on the teddy bear poster from her birthday party. Grandma made the bear poster, and I wanted to use it again.
A Toilet Paper Advent Calender
For Goldilocks I made a Christmas tree advent calender. I took toilet paper rolls and cut them in half. I glued them down into a Christmas tree shape and painted the outside of the rolls green with kids paint. Once everything dried, I added treats to each compartment.
We also do a family advent book each day. To see our list of Christmas books for this year, go here.
