Christmas comes with anticipation and the arrival calendars help us make full use of our expectations. The arrival calendar is a creative reminder of the upcoming holiday season (if you’re lucky, you might find some fun on the side). As opposed to buying a store-bought arrival calendar every Christmas you cry “I’m close”, why not you and the kids do a DIY version.
Making a DIY arrival calendar is the best description of a fun project. Your children will enjoy the simple process and will make the age-old tradition even more special — you will all look forward to Christmas more than ever. Also, they can be reused, so you can save good money (buying advent calendars) by sticking to the magic work of your hands.
One day, I arrived home in an advent garland built by my children and the smile on my face could light up the world. They prepared the decoration of the pieces of paper folded, drilled in a hole, and stamped in the middle. It had two rooms (one for each child), and one piece of Halloween candy left on each side. The children decorated each room and shone with pride and admired the result – they loved it. So, if you have not made an advent calendar, it is not too late.
There are several DIY advent calendars online that your kids can re-create for fun and satisfying information. You can make a garland from knit socks and feel it. Even your discovery boxes can prove useful in your endeavor. Bottom line? There is no shortage of ideas and creativity when it comes to making memorable advent calendars that go beyond many seasons and Christmas.
