Now here is an advent calendar that is speedy quick to make and super cute too. It is one that kids can play with and interact with and change around. Counting down to Christmas can be an exciting part of the season for lots of kiddos. It is way to create connection, giving and sharing of the holiday spirit. A magnetic button advent calendar is something that can be made together and used year after year.
To make it you will need a few things.
- Magnetic Cookie Sheet
- Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue
- Card Stock and Scissors (if you want to decorate)
- Printable of the 25 Days (FREE DOWNLOAD here)
Use the Aleene’s Fast Grab to glue buttons to the magnets then stick them on the cookie sheet with the printable.
If you would like, you can add a ribbon hanger and use the card stock to decorate the cookie sheet with trees or snowmen or whatever you like.
So much fun and so simple too! There is another sheet that you can download too if you want to cut out little holiday icons (Laura Kelly style) and use them to paste on as the days go by. This might work better for you. You can grab it here or by clicking on the picture.
