    Advent Calendar
    Advent is the start of Christmas Season. It begins 4 Sundays before Christmas.
    An Advent Calendar is a poster of card with each day from December 1st until
    December 24th. Each door has a picture. Every morning children open 1 door.
    Some doors even have a piece of chocolate inside.

    Advent Calendars were originally created in Germany in the late 1800s. These days
    you can buy Advent Calendars with pictures of your favorite movie stars or singers.
    Why don’t you make your own Advent Calendar this year?

    We have included 24 Christmas picture flashcards in this month’s Activity Bank.
    You will also need 2 sheets of card, a ruler, a pencil ,glue and a pair of scissors.

    How To Make Your Advent Calendar

    1.       Use a ruler to draw a grid of 4X6 squares onto a sheet of card.
    2.       Cut out 24 individual doors from the sheet of card. (See attached Handout.)
             Write a number on each door from 1 to 24.
    3.       On a separate sheet of card draw another grid of 4X6 squares.
    4.       Cut the Christmas pictures one by one.
    5.       Stick one Christmas picture in each square on your grid.
    6.       Stick the piece of card with doors onto the piece of card with pictures.
    7.       Enjoy your Advent Calendar!
