Let's countdown to Christmas with this great Christmas tree advent calendar printable. Unwrap a smile every day until Christmas.
I am such a sucker for advent calendars but after getting a few toy ones that generally get lost or eaten by the dogs I prefer ones with a sweet treat inside. This is a super easy DIY advent calendar that your family will love.
You don't have to use mint Kisses, the holiday ones normally come in different colors. I think it would be fun to make a few of the treats different colors because then it will look like the tree has ornaments on it. ou
Make sure to print out the advent calendar on a good cardstock so you don't tear the paper when you pull the chocolate off. You could even hang it up if you punch holes in the corner and hang it with ribbon. Download the Christmas Tree “Countdown to Christmas” Advent Calendar Printable here.
