Advent Calendar

I remember when i was younger having Advent calendars with little drawers filled with lots of goodies that had been selected especially for me, favourite sweets, stickers and Christmas novelties. So this year in what i hope will become a tradition in our house i have created something similar for the little man.

Grandma very kindly purchased the little man a fab Christmas advent tree from M&S, which i had spotted a few weeks before. The calendar is bright, colourful and beautifully decorated and has 24 generous size pockets (The 24th pocket is bigger with lots of room for extra Christmas Eve treats)

Complete with goodies and exchange tokens


I created tokens using round cardboard cutouts, which i decorated with christmas stickers, drawings and special messages for the little man. A few pockets have been filled with tiny chocolate coins and the remainder filled with tokens that detail craft activities or that can be exchanged for a 'surprise' from the lucky dip.

Craft Activities
 
Most of the gifts have a christmas theme from stickers and books to making baubles and Christmas cookies. My idea is to help to share the magic of Christmas in each of the days of the Advent.

What kind of advent do you have?
