Do you put up an Advent calendar in your home each year? For some of us, the custom of the Advent calendar consists of those ones with the little doors. You open one each day and inside is a piece of chocolate. Fun! But there are lots of different ways to use Advent calendars and we have some DIY Advent Calendar Ideas to share with you today!
DIY Advent Calendar Ideas
Advent calendars just add to the fun and excitement of the holiday season. First, you get to count down to the big day, adding excitement as you get closer and closer. But then, there is that element of surprise each day as a new shape, new image, or new item is revealed.
Make one of these calendars for your kids. Not only are they fun but it helps eliminate the daily “how many more days until Christmas” question. Or surprise your significant other or BFF with one. They’ll be sure to smile each and every day as they think of you and your sweet gift.
You can even make one for your dog or cat or other pets. How about creating a family one with some kind of special treat for the entire family each day? Or fill your calendar with activities – watch a movie, play a board game, and so on.
Aren’t these fun ideas? Start making yours now and you’ll be all set for December 1st!
