Christmas Craft: Advent Calendars

Advent calendars are a great way to help your children keep track of how many more days until Chirstmas.  Ever since Thanksgiving my five year old has started each new day with the same question… “Is today Christmas?”  I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to tomorrow so we can start our advent calendar.  I may even make one to put in her room that is just special for her.  I thought this Candy Christmas Tree Calendar that I found on was really cute.

Here is what you need to make it:

  • Green Cardboard
  • Paint, Markers, or Crayons
  • 24 pieces of ribbon (each 10″ long)
  • Small Bell
  • 24 Individually Wrapped, Small Candies
  • Scissors
  • Paper to write the poem on
