Sweets, trading cards and of course lots of toys are hidden behind the 24 little doors of each of these often expensive copies. Their content usually appeals to toddlers who are delighted with it. (I know that from my own experience.) However, my children have long outgrown toddlerhood. That’s why I’m going to use an advent calendar this year, which I’ll fill out myself. To motivate little daughters to do handicrafts, we even made it together. It consists of 24 paper bagsthat we folded and glued ourselves.

The pictures are of course complemented by Christmas sweets. After all, I don’t want to mess with my sweet tooth.
