Make a paper bag Christmas countdown calendar for your children to have fun leading up to Christmas day!
In less than a month Advent will start, or count down to Christmas. We made up the Advent Box as a fundraiser for our school.
Inside the numbered paper bags you’ll find small toys and sweets, some with a Christmas theme: eg. Christmas stickers, crackers, crayons to color some Christmas pictures, etc.
Hang them up with pegs on a line/rope/string to display them as pretty decoration.
If you have a staircase, hang it over the rail, also using a rope/string, threading it through at the fold.
You could use it on the fridge, simply add magnets to the back, or simply hang it up the Christmas tree!
If you need your advent calendar to be travel-friendly, add it to a box as we did with THIS one!
