Of course I make my own advent calendar for J, and of course it does not contain sweets and chocolate.
The idea is simple.
J has to punch 💪🏻 the holes (which i made with tissue paper) according to the date, then he can retrieve a task card. It can be an activity e.g. make some Xmas cards together, or make some deco, or a small gift e.g. note pad, glittery masking tapes…
He absolutely LOVE the idea that he has to punch the hole in order to get the task card. He looks forward to each day so that he can invent different ways to punch💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 .
It is not as beautiful as the ones you can buy from the shops, but i guess the important thing is J loves it, and I hope he would remember that I made something special for him in one of the Xmas.
