Here it is November… what, can it be that close to the holidays, already?
And you’ve got no Advent calendar to keep the little kiddies calm through the pre-Christmas countdown?
Just grab the two PDF files from Marilyn’s Christmas web page, and fire up the ol’ colour printer.
You’re going to print out one copy of each page. On the page with the Christmas tree picture, cut out three sides of each of the numbered doors. The second page is glued on behind, with tiny seasonal pictures to be revealed as each door is opened day by day through December.
You can’t beat a quick (free) printable for a last-minute Advent calendar. And the Toymaker’s design has real old-fashioned charm — like all of her paper toys — but all the speed and convenience that a busy modern parent could hope for.
Want more? See Free Printable Christmas Countdown Advent Calendars to start with, and I’ll be sure to let you know if I find any more, especially if they are not the usual kindergarten things.
