How to make a minimalist advent calendar?
One of my favorite months is December. Not just because Christmas is in December but I was born in this month and being a mom of five kids this period of the year is more full of magic, joy and happiness than normal weekdays. So I like much these days of the year, the only thing I don’t like is the advent calendar filled with chocolate and useless little toys.
First of all my kids get enough chocolate and sweets in December thanks to Santa Claus (here, in my country he comes on the evening of 5 December and not at Christmas) – if I economized this amount it would be enough till Easter – secondly, we already have a tone of useless toys, we don’t need more.
It took a long time for me to find the perfect version of advent calendar which can be made by using a few simple, common supplies you can find at home. What is the solution? A minimalist paper version kids can personalize as they want. Just CLICK HERE to download the free printable version! (Source.)
- it’s made in A3 format size, but it can be printed in A4 format size too
- print the first page on a paper board
- if you print the ornaments on a self adhesive sticker printer paper, you have to just cut off them and stick on the Xmas-tree, in any other case you have to use paper glue or re-usable adhesive (it makes 3D feeling)
- the third page made for kids who want to color the ornaments by themselves
Let’s have fun!
