Countdown to Christmas – How to make a Cool Advent Calendar
OK. So I know its a bit late to be showing you how to make an Advent Calendar, however I could not resist showing mine off (and truthfully, I didn’t have it finished last week!) Better late than never!!
I have been wanting to make a groovy calendar for years now – my children having always had the good old cardboard number you get in the supermarkets. I wanted something cool, something fun, something easy and this year – I found it!
Say Hello to my Christmas Sock Advent Calendar!!
After FINALLY sourcing all my Christmas socks (much harder to find cheaply than I first thought) from ALDI and Amazon, I picked up all the other little things to make this project work. Mini wooden pegs from Wrapco, Ribbon from the $2 shop, mini chocolates from ALDI and a great little set of Advent Calendar Activities in printable form from My Little Table.
Since the silly season is always hectic and we have so much on already anyway, I used only 8 activities (in the big socks) and gave the little sizes only chocolate.
I Love It! It looks fantastic and its easily stored away for next year.
