It’s officially less than a month until Christmas…Time to bring out the Advent Calendars.
As a mum of 3 kids, Bec’s home is fully stocked with advent calendars. “They’ve got one each to avoid any fights. So they get a chocolate every night.” But Jeziel stumbled upon a very unique advent calendar. Print a photo of Santa’s face and underneath mark the days until Christmas. Each day your kids can add cotton wool to fill in Santa’s beard. It even comes with a rhyme.
Santa’s beard is very bare
on his chin he has no hair
so each day add a puff of white
when its full he will come that night
“It’s brilliant no ones is eating chocolate so your kids aren’t rowdy.” But Bec isn’t so keen on the idea. “I don’t think you can class it as an advent calendar. Like its a cool countdown but not an advent calendar.” So Bec and Jeziel wanted to know what kind of advent calendar do you have?
Michelle bought a Chupa Chup advent calendar for her daughter. “She’s stoked because she doesn’t like chocolate. So to have one she can enjoy is a bonus.” Veronica built an advent calendar out of Lego. Each day they build a separate room and add a Jellybean.
Rachel’s mum was a frugal woman. She would stick 24 toothpicks into a potato. Each day Rachel and her siblings would pull out a toothpick. “The funny thing is for ages we just accepted it. But as we got older we were like, was mum really that cheap she couldn’t spend $2 on an advent calendar?”
