Advent calendars

2 Dec

This year I seem to have gone advent crazy. We actually have eight advent calendars in our house of one sort or another.

Firstly we have the advent activity tree.

Then we have a magnetic nativity scene which I’ve had since before we even had children. It’s looking a bit sparse at the moment but everyday a person or item from the nativity arrives to fill it up.

This year I also bought the story of Christmas advent book after recommendations from the fabulous The Imagination Tree.

Then The Limpet has her own advent calendar containing a small gift each day. I made it last year for her and its made from toilet rolls stapled together at the end and then wrapped in Christmas paper and numbered.

This year I’ve also made The Gannet his own one – he was too young last year. I’ve made his out of all his old socks. It looks quite cute and is a great little reminder of his growth though the last year.

My husband then decided that they needed a conventional chocolate advent calendar each. And the last calendar is a countdown one which we made at toddlers. So that’s eight in total!
