Let the kids begin the Christmas countdown by making their very own advent calendar! Our Festive Friends Advent Calendar is the perfect craft to get the kids in the Christmas spirit and spending quality time with you.

Decorate 24 envelopes with our festive face cut-outs and numbers 1-24, for an advent your little ones will love! This calendar is perfect for stashing with sweeties, letters from Father Christmas and fun, festive facts!

2 Glue the festive faces and numbers on to the envelopes. Then leave to dry. Keep some envelopes aside for your own festive decorations!

3 Fill the envelopes with Christmas treats! Chocolate coins and candy canes work particularly well!

4 Seal the envelopes. Then peg your envelopes onto 4 lengths of string roughly 125cm long. Hang from somewhere high, we tied the string around a length of wood and fixed it to the wall!

No pegs? Use blu-tac to stick the envelopes to a wall in neat rows or in a pattern!
