Ideas for Advent Calendars
It's that time of year again, only a few weeks until the start of Advent.
We have a wooden calendar that I fill each year with small gifts and treats. I am always on the look out for sustainable gifts so thought I would put together this list of small items that won't break the bank either!
If you would like the easy option, I have put toegther a Lanka Kade Advent. You can chose from 12 or 24 days. If you go for 24 days I can also bag them all up for you and put the date on each one. Pick your theme and let me know what you have already so I can avoid duplicates.
A Set of 3 crayons in a small canvas bag
A perfect option for bug lovers, buy the complete set of 33 or you can also buy individually. You could chose a few of these along with the mini beast flash cards and pop one of those in each day too.
Put a flashcard in each day, whether you go for wildflowers, landmarks, planets, moon phases or a combination of a few options.
5. Spinning Tops
We have a range of these available and are small enough too, a few themes to chose from:
Loose Parts can be purchased individually or in bundles. Why not by a bowl or basket for day 1 and fill it with 23 loose part items during Advent.
These Sensory Reflective Sound Buttons make a great option to add variety to loose parts play.
So many different flavours available, could easily go in the advent with a few wooden tools too.
I love the Yellow Door stones, they could easily be split to put into advent calendars. Maybe a Footprints set, or Bugs with the Wooden Mini Beast blocks. There are lots of difference combinations to go for.
