I sat down to do some menu planning this morning and it hit me like a ton of bricks… Christmas is just five weeks away tomorrow.
Every year I vow that I won’t let Christmas sneak up on me and yet every year it does. The first day of Advent is less than two weeks away! There is still time to make an advent calendar thought, and here is some inspiration for making gorgeous advent calendars!
1. Advent bags
Last year my Mum made each of the kids a set of little advent bags and filled them with a treat or Christmas activity. She is nothing if not over the top my Mum! This year she is making Noey a set too and the kids are very excited about hanging them up and counting down to Christmas!
2. Advent Tree
Despite this blogger claiming her advent calendar was last minute and thrown together, this little tree advent calendar at Wisecraft is fabulous! So simple, yet so effective!
3. Snap Lock Bag Advent.
If you are after something really quick and easy, yet effective, this advent ‘tree’ made from snap lock bags stuck to the wall is awesome.
Unfortunately my high school German is no longer good enough to search Living At Home.de and find the actual post where this image was originally found, but if anyone can link me up, please do so! Thanks to Jen for translating and finding the correct link to this at Living At Home.de
5. Toilet Paper Roll Advent.
