Today I come to the aid of all those who plan to make an Advent calendar for their child by themselves and prefer an activity-based form. I admit that I will be doing it myself for the first time. It’s time when my older child grew up a bit and she is already able to understand meaning of those Advent Calendar activities 🙂
In today’s post I am going to share with you a list of ideas for Advent Calendar activities. Additionally, you can download and print a blank template and check out yourself.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
