Advent Book Calendar

I love the tradition of Advent Calendars, that excitement building day by day until the big celebration on the 25th of December. There’s a massive variety of chocolate advent calendars offered at the shops, but who really needs to start the day eating low quality chocolate.

I read about this idea somewhere, probably in a blog ending with the word ‘kid’, and today I have acted upon it. Be gone procrastination!

I simply bought 2 rolls of wrapping paper and a few new books from Big W. Then I went through the shelves and selected favourites to make a grand total of 25 books. I wrapped all of the books individually and numbered them 1 to 25.

My three children will take turns to open a gift each day and they will love finding a new story or reading an old favourite again.

Quick, don’t wait, do it now!
