Just look at the joy on that kid's face! That's the look of Christmas. Now let's get you your own poster advent calendar, shall we?
Things You'll Need
- Free downloadable advent calendar
- Sticky tack
- Crayons or markers
First, take this download to your local printshop that prints engineer prints. I usually go with Staples because it's super cheap and they make it easy to print big poster sizes. Perfect, right? We printed ours in a 24" x 36" size. Nice and big!
Now that your poster is made, put it up on the wall! I usually use sticky tack to make sure it stays well and doesn't damage my wall.
On the first of December, let your kiddo color in the "1" ornament, then let them color in one ornament every day until Christmas. It's a really easy and fun way to countdown to the big day!
Enjoy the final countdown!
