Let the kids begin the Christmas countdown by making their very own advent calendar! Our Festive Friends Advent Calendar is the perfect Christmas craft to get the kids in the Christmas spirit and spending quality time with you.
Decorate 24 envelopes with our festive face cut-outs and numbers 1-24, for an advent your little ones will love! This calendar is perfect for stashing with sweeties, letters from Father Christmas and fun, festive facts! Add a lovely selfmade Christmas Wreath next to it and you have the perfect Christmas decoration for the whole of December.
1 Download and print out the advent template. Carefully cut out the faces and numbers, then colour in the numbers.
2 Glue the festive faces and numbers on to the envelopes. Then leave to dry. Keep some envelopes aside for your own festive decorations!
3 Fill the envelopes with Christmas treats! Chocolate coins and candy canes work particularly well!
4 Seal the envelopes. Then peg your envelopes onto 4 lengths of string roughly 125cm long. Hang from somewhere high, we tied the string around a length of wood and fixed it to the wall!
No pegs? Use blu-tac to stick the envelopes to a wall in neat rows or in a pattern!
5 Let the Christmas countdown begin!
Remember to stash an extra special surprise for Christmas Eve! After all, your little elf worked hard all year to make it on to Santa's Nice List!
