Christmas in the footsteps of 2015 again near, every this time male children’s shoes is not particularly sad??In every year, gifts have to send every year. Do you want to send what gift to people around you.What Christmas gifts do you want to send ?Have a try to make Christmas calendar.
Make a DIY chocolate advent calendar filled with Hershey’s Kisses and fun little activities to do every day of the month!
This advent calendar is so simple to make; here’s what you need:
Small fabric gift bags
Hershey’s Kisses Dark Chocolates with Mint Truffle and Hershey’s Hugs candies
Crib mattress frame (or something else to hang the treat bags on, like a picture frame)
Paper and pen (or printed advent activities)
Start by stenciling numbers onto your fabric bags: one for each day of December up until the 25th. I like to use a small makeup sponge when I stencil; it holds a good amount of paint, but not so much that it seeps under the stencil and messes up the clean edges.
Once the paint is dry on the bags, it’s time to fill them!
This year I decided to add a little something special in addition to the fun activities and kindnesses. So I added a Hershey’s Kisses Dark Chocolate with Mint Truffle and a Hershey’s Hugs candy to each bag as well. My handwriting is horrible so I printed out the little notes for each day, but you can just as easily write it out with a pen and paper instead!
This year we have a new addition to our family for Christmas, and I’m so excited to introduce baby AJ to our family tradition of making homemade advent calendars! She is too young to actually help me put together the calendar this year, but my mom is in town to help take care of me, JM, and AJ while we get used to being a brand new family of three, so she helped me put it together this year while JM took care of the baby.
Luckily our dining room table is big enough that the whole family can still spend time together; Mom and I worked on the advent calendar on one end while JM changed AJ at the other end!
Once all the bags were filled with Hershey’s Kisses chocolates and the daily notes, I used glittery mini clothespins to clip them to an old crib frame that I rescued from our alley.
