DIY Advent Calendars to Help You Count Down Christmas November 29 2015

Tuesday marks the start of advent – only 26 days to go ‘til Christmas! Today I thought I have a go at making our very own DIY advent calendar. The easy option would be to nip to Tesco’s and buy two chocolate filled Disney themed calendars, which I know my girls would love but after a late night scour through Pinterest I have discovered some fun and very simple Advent calendars that include fun activities and traditions as well as some treats for the whole family to enjoy in the lead up to Christmas.

Here’s a quick round up of what I discovered.  Links to all projects can be found below the images.
