Oh, it is almost the first of December and the countdown to Christmas will truly begin in our household. What a wonderful way to celebrate advent, with your very own hand made and personalised advent calender – here is a round up of our top ten favourites that are sure to inspire. They are amazing advent calender ideas to make with or for your little ones. There is just about time to get making before the 1st of December. Ted is already excited about Christmas, what with the school play and Christmas party in the next couple of weeks. I am just putting the finishing touches to an advent calender for Ted, and know that when he starts to open it on December 1st, the excitement will build even more.
