Handmade advent calendars

2 Dec

As it’s Christmas, I wanted to share our family advent calendar. It was made by our mum when we were young and it still comes out every year. The original and the best…


This is my advent calendar which I made 3 years ago for school. The children like it, mainly because each bag has a chocolate in it.


In each bag there is also a tree decoration which can then be tied onto the ribbon when the bag is untied. I’m still on the lookout for a suitable father Christmas decoration for the 24th bag.


Also, you can see my advent calendar here on Silly Old Suitcases blog.
