We still have plenty of time before advent begins so how about creating your own ‘Do it yourself Advent Calendar’?
If you find the chocolate stuffed shop bought versions a little lightweight why not create your own? Create the calendar with numbered paper bags, 24 socks or the adventurous might create their own Matchbox Chest: This requires twenty-four match boxes and split-pin paper fasteners, glue and something to decorate the calendar. Use the split-pins to create drawer-knobs at one end of each match-box tray, glue the matchboxes into a four by six chest and decorate as desired. Now you just need to fill your gift – you could include: a Bible verse or thought for the day a craft activity, task or challenge.
If you do make one send us a pic!
