How to make a Christmas Book Advent Calendar!

How to make a christmas book advent calendar for xmas

 

There’s something special about books. I think with all the technology about these days, it’s a special moment to be able to pick up a good old fashioned book. To sit with your child and make memories. I still remember the odd the occasion my mum read to me 30 odd years ago. Snugging up to her while she helped me bring the book alive with just my imagination. We read to Finlay a lot and I hope, he too, one day will be able to rember these moments with fondness. What better time of year I say for this, than Christmas?!

 

So last year Finlay had his chocolate advent and we bought him a luxery toy advent calendar too. I decided that come this Xmas, I would make him a Book Advent to go alongside his chocolate advent. Really it has been no more expensive, in fact probably cheaper than buying a Toy one!… Read More

Christmas - Xmas Advent Calanders for kids and children 2017

 

How is it November the 06th already? Time to get a move on! So, I have given you alternative Xmas Calendars for the ladies and Alternative Xmas calendars for the gents. Today, I bring you the alternative Xmas calendars for the kids! Last year we bought Finlay his first luxury advent calendar and I was blown away. It really was amazing and a great price. Finlay loved the fact that he had a little xmas toy to open each day on the countdown to Christmas. Not only that, but as the days went on, he created a fantastic little xmas scene. I have been a bit slow this year and I haven’t actually bought him one yet, hopefully this guide can help us all decide which ones to purchase. So here are my favourites for 2017!
