Tinsel Advent Calendar

 I can not take credit for this idea as my children received these as a gift.  However they are hand made and such a great and easy idea!

A Christmas Countdown

  The real reason for the season is to commemorate the Birth of Jesus Christ on the 25th of Dec; so what better way to do this than an ADVENT CALENDAR! Make a puzzle for the kids and each piece is placed on a wall or window area up until Christmas Day.

Each year our scene is set up slightly different (see 2011 here), we don’t set up our ‘stable/cave’ until Christmas eve, but have the scene unfolding around the area.  The children love to see the figures moving closer to the cave in anticipation that Christmas day is nearer.
