Making of last minute advent calendar with socks

Start by making numbers. It’s much easier when you have clips with tablets. But nothing lost if you don’t have any. Just cut equal squares from the cardboard and write on them days of December from 1 to 24. You can leave this pleasure to your child. Mine was delighted 🙂

Stick the notes to the clips with double-sided tape.

If you have large wooden clips then you can write numbers directly on them.

Preparing the clips with numbers

Then install the ribbon or string. You need about a meter and a half.
