Crafts: Advent Calendar Made Simple

This is the second year I’ve designed and planned an advent calendar. Last year’s calendar was a hit among the kids and I hope to continue this tradition for many years to come! Please take a look below for details and materials. Lastly, I’d like to thank Craftistas for providing all materials for this craft! All thoughts, content and design are my own ;)


Everyday I have a different scripture and activity for each evening.


  • 1 Sheet of White Handmade Paper
  • Canvas Corp Mini Clothespins Bag (25)
  • White rope
  • Washit Paper Tape (Trousseau set)
  • I’m using this advent calendar printable which has 1 scripture verse per day. Lastly, coming up with an activity every single evening can be a little daunting, so I came up with simple schedule that will work with our family’s schedule.

Advent Calendar Activities:

  • Sun December  { 1 , 8, 15, 22 } evening activities: Light candles + hot cocoa
  • Mon December { 2, 9, 16, 23 } evening activities:  Bible Story + cookies by the fire
  • Tue December { 3, 10, 17, 24 } evening activities: Christmas songs + musical instruments
  • Wed December { 4, 11, 18, 25 } evening activities: Movie (Charlie Brown Xmas) + pop corn
  • Thu December { 5, 12, 19 } morning activities: Special lunch notes + treat, 12/19 decorate cookies
  • Fri December { 6, 13, 20 } evening activities: movie night + pop corn
  • Sat December { 7, 14, 21 } morning activities: advent + xmas pancakes. { 14-21st } Day time: Carousel or Snowflake Lane
