The Advent Calendar is a custom primarily dedicated to children to accompany them while waiting for the arrival of Santa Claus. But, let’s face it, by now even the big do not give it to them. Precisely for this reason the countdown gets closer and closer I want to give some nice idea on the subject.
An advent calendar for all tastes
The first advent calendars began to be seen in Germany in 1920. We must therefore thank the Germans for this very good idea now widespread throughout Europe and the United States. In the past these particular calendars began the contdown the first Advent Sunday. Today, however, they use to start on December 1st. Tradition has it that in every little box they are sweets of various kinds. Personally I have never particularly loved this choice of gift and I have always tried to invent something different. For example messages or positive thoughts handwritten or of memories past. Or small good deeds to do every day until Christmas. For my son instead I tried to avoid sweets by inserting the pieces of a game than to assemble or puzzle pieces. I remember one year I found giocheria in a box with 30 cars and saved myself with those. Lately, however, even on the market they will begin to find Advent calendars without already beautiful cake ready able to satisfy us all. I’m in love with these four.

DIY ideas for an advent calendar
But what if we wanted to make an advent calendar on your own? On the net you really are so many hints and ideas to make it happen in a few steps and with poor materials. Surely everyone in the house we have some scraps of cloth from which we can gain some small bags. The pieces of wood that we could use as a base. Old clothespins for laundry that we can afford to keep a paper bag attached to a support which we have chosen. And why not, reuse an old wooden ladder magically making a visual design piece. In short, to the imagination. The most beautiful and original advent calendar has yet to be created. Yes, just like you!
