Mama made Monday - advent calendar

The children are every excited to see a string of little bags pinned up the stairs.

I bought the string and Christmas pegs in Poundland; they are supposed to be for cards. I needed two because there were 12 pegs in each packet.
I bought the paper sweet bags on ebay; they were just over £2 for 100.

Ours contain sweeties, but you could also fill them with small toys, crayons, erasers etc.

I'm hoping to have time to hand print some labels with the numbers 1 to 24, but no promises on that front!

  1. That's a great idea! Might try something similar this year as we're all getting bored of the same old felt pocket advent calendar that has been coming out for the last 10 years.

    Your Wartime Syrup sponge looks yummy ;-)
