Who doesn’t love counting down the days until Christmas with an Advent calendar?! And it’s even more fun when you can get a little creative and make your own personalised advent calendar. But, we here at Justick Australia understand you live busy lives; children to look after, washing and housework to be done and part- or full-time work on top of all of that, which means DIY jobs are something you tend to steer clear of. But Justick is here to show you just how to create your own DIY Advent Calendar in a matter of minutes – and of course, no pins, glue, magnets or tape are needed!
All you need is a Justick Board, printer, scissors, some paper and a pen/marker and you’re ready to create a Justick Advent Calendar! So simple, why not get the kids involved too?
Choose a template, image or shape for each day. We’ve gone for a Christmas stocking! Print out 25 copies of this. If you don’t have a printer; simply get creative with pen and paper!
2. Now for the most time consuming part of this; cut the templates out.
3. Number the templates 1-25 using a pen or marker.
4. Now it’s time to get a little creative! On the back of each template or image, write an activity to do on the day. Use this as an opportunity to get the kids involved and bring the family together. After all, the holidays are all about being with our loved ones.
Here’s some ideas to get you started:
Roast marshmallows over the fireplace to make homemade s’mores
Decorate a gingerbread house
Take a family drive to see the neighbourhood Christmas lights
Leave milk and cookies out for Santa (On Christmas Eve!)
Write a letter to Santa
5. Once you’ve written the 25 activities on the back of the templates, it’s time to get Juststicking! Simply place the templates on your Justick arranged however you like! Remember this is your personalised Advent Calendar, so make it your own!
And that’s it, you’re done! Justick Boards make time consuming tasks simple, saving you time so you can enjoy more of the holiday season with those who matter most.
And the beautiful thing about using a Justick Board for this is, that once Christmas is done, you just lift the paper templates off the board and you have a blank canvas to use for anything from family scheduling and planning, notices and reminders, to-do lists, grocery lists, Justick Board uses are endless!
