I have been feeling particularly un-Christmassy this year but Junior is constantly reminding me that Christmas will soon be here so I have finally got around to making a few things.
Last week Junior and I started our Advent Calendar - this year I decided to use up a pile of toilet rolls which have been sitting in the useful box for a while.
I love this calendar I saw at maya*made last year, so we made a similar one and it was super easy. (She has made an even cuter calendar this year but it is a little more complicated for little hands). Junior helped me staple the bottom of the rolls to make a little pocket. Then we painted them with a roller and some white acrylic paint. To finish them off we stuck on a little red star and numbered then with a red pen. I printed out our list of activities adding one to each pocket as well as a little treat for Junior and Rascal.
Then we pegged them to a red ribbon using miniature clothes pegs. Done! Now I just have to get started on my Christmas present list - Sigh!
