Day 32: Home Advent Calendar

Day 32: I know… it’s December 1st. BUT, just in case you haven’t set up your advent calendar yet… here’s a fun one for you! My little home advent.

Supplies:

- My home printouts (right click + save: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten, Eleven, Twelve, Thirteen, Fourteen)

- Paper lunch bags (or any large pieces of paper)

- Clothes pins

- Tinsel garland, ribbon, or twine

- Tape

- Adhesive

Directions:

- Print out all the home printables.

- Cut out the sides and base of each house (leaving the roof untrimmed).

- Size them up next to the lunch bags. If the bag is too big, fold it smaller than the house and tape. Tape the house down over the face of the bag. Trim the excess paper where the roof is. Repeat this for all the homes (check out the photos below for help). If you don’t have paper bags, you can always fold up a piece of paper and tape it up. You’re pretty much creating a little paper pocket (behind the houses) for your advent goodies.

- Hang the houses however you’d like! I chose to string up a tinsel garland, in the shape of a tree, and pin up the houses with gold-spray-painted clothes pins.

- Fill with your favorite goodies, and enjoy!
