Saturday Surfing: Advent calendars

We've not done much Advent activities yet, but we've started reading some books on Christmas. Right now, we're just concentrating on beating the sniffles, but I thought I'd just share some lovely Advent calendars that I've seen on the Internet. I would love to try making one of these next year!

For those who want something simple:

:: Use envelopes:

:: Or recycle those toilet paper rolls!

:: How about a DIY scratch and reveal version, that you can bring along anywhere?

Or if you want something colourful and more 3-dimensional, try these two versions, which come all ready with free printable templates! (Click on the link below the photos to get the templates.)

Whatever the case, this is my favourite of all, and I think it can be made using toilet rolls and construction paper. Do check out the link, since the post contains more pretty Advent calendars!

Did you make an Advent calendar this year? Do share yours if you have! Blessed weekend!


  1. Awwww - these are all so sweet. We have so many advent calendars. My hubby made one for my daughter and every day he wrote a special message or suggested activity for her.

    My favourite is our Christmas book advent calendar. Every day my daughter unwraps a Christmas book (I even wrapped them in fabric so it's more eco-friendly). Here's a link to the posting I did about the book calendar (I wrote it last year).

    I love counting down to Christmas - it makes the season especially fun for little ones!

  2. Thanks for sharing, Jennifer! Its so sweet of your hubby to make a calendar for your daughter, and the book calendar sounds like a great idea!
