These are really rather magnificent – giant advent calendars for Christmas that you put together with the kids to create a wonderfully BIG tree that you can then add your personalised (or not!) baubles to every day in the countdown to Christmas.
This is a perfect little idea to help make Christmas a little bit special wither for your classroom, or your family. For classes, give a bauble to each of the children to design – or a few of them. Put their names on them, and pick a few to go on the tree each day.
As our article on the tree suggests, you can also write mantras on the back, clues to a scavenger hunt each day, or just lovely messages. Whatever you want – the choice is yours!
To find out how to build the tree, scroll down to the bottom of the article. You need a big wall to pop this as it is made from 16 sheets of A4 paper – you will need two blank sheets to complete it like we have in the picture. It measures c. 1.2m x 1.7m so make sure you have enough space. If you don’t, download our smaller calendars instead as we have plenty of options available, too!
We have both a colouring in and a coloured version for you in the download file, so you decide what you want to do and run with it! Whatever you decide, we know this is something that the children will enjoy, either in your home or in your classroom.
We love to see what you’ve done with the printables, so do remember to tag us on social media using the #KiddyCharts.
