It’s Christmas Advent Calendar time! Because I’m a huge procrastinator, all of the Lego Advent calendars were sold out. I made a trip to the mall and then called 7 stores… yes… all sold out! Who knew I should have bought them back in April? With the start of December upon us, I was forced to make my own.
With some pieces of scrapbook paper, I was very happy with my non-Lego version, plus I saved $50! These calendars are SUPER easy to make (oh and I mentioned cheap right?) and it’s not too late to make one yourself! They were so easy that I even made one for each kid. Take that procrastination!
Actually, they are even more easy for you, because I designed them for you!
All you need to do is think of what little treats your kids will get each day. The free printable design is customizable, so you can either keep what I have typed, or re-type your own treats. As you can see below, my daughter is really into money, candy and crafts:-) So unless your kids are obsessed with quarters, you’ll probably want type your own. ha!
I printed the little treats on the back of scrapbook paper and the circles on sticker paper.
You can choose from three banners. Santa… (My daughter wanted Tinkerbell, but too bad, so sad, she got Santa.)
A nativity scene… (I found this pretty graphic over at The Graphics Fairy)
And for the Star Wars fans out there, this one’s for you:-) Yes, I know your son loves me about right now! (Graphic found via Starwars.com)
