advent calendar to make
Chocolate has taken over advent calendars! So this is a set of printables to make your own set of pictures (that children can decorate every day of advent) with a Bible verse to read each day. In our family we won’t do this instead of chocolate but alongside the chocolate eating advent calendar.
Use this any way that suits you – we have some Christmas twine and paper clips.
There is an extra picture for Christmas day.
