Did you do advent calendars when you were a kid? Did you make them each year or use the same one? My grandma made us one, and we used it every year. I’d love to hear…

  1. I love all these ideas! Check out the one I made it's a little different than the one's you featured

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I've seen so many great new advent calendar ideas this season! I love how most of these involve some form of paper craft but are all completely unique! I think my favorite is the Hobby Craft Cute Envelopes though – I love the plaid deer cut out. Great finds!

  3. Thanks love for including mine!

  4. That is a lovely idea…. I am sure your kids will have so much fun… especially the Paper Bag Boxes.

  5. Love your round up. I also have an advent calendar i made last year from toilet rolls, check it out on my blog @ http://www.serenityyou.com , you’ll find it under the christmas label

  6. You might want to check your spelling of the word “calendar” in your title. ;)

  7. What a great round up! Thank you for posting these ideas. I’ve been trying to decide what kind of advent calendar to use now that I’ve got a little one. These ideas are so cute it may be just as hard to decide now as before!

  8. We use the same calendar every year and sometimes add another one as well. Ours is a homemade match box calendar but we use it as the 24 Days of Service … every day our kids have a task they do that serves others.
