Last minute Advent Calendar

If you are still looking for inspiration to create your own Advent Calendar for this Christmas, here is our last minute Advent calendar DIY. It’s quick, cute, and really fun to make! This would make a great pre-Christmas activity with kids and the whole family, minus the step where the bags are filled with goodies, of course!

What you need:
24 plain envelopes
Random stickers
Scissors
Ribbon
Rope
Markers, pens

How-to:
Decorate each envelope differently, ask your child to put together a little story on each envelope using stickers, markers, pens, whatever they like. Then add numbers and make holes. Then fill each envelope with little goodies, be it a personal card or a little candy, all is possible, the most important there is love and meaningful reasons behind it.

It’s all so easy, but when you put it all together… it just works!
