DIY Countdown Calendar Ideas

Whenever it is Christmas or some other occasion countdown calendars are fun way of awaiting the event, not only for kids.

We often make calendars ourselves and fill them with all kinds of things, not necessarily chocolates but gemstones, fossils, doll house miniatures and other things our girls love.

Your thoughts…

  1. Great ideas! I especially like the hanging calendar and the one made from roll tubes. In the past we’ve made a tree shaped calendar from match boxes, I think I’ll try the hanging one this year.

  2. Kim, the hanging calendar is very quick to make, it took me one evening. The tree shaped matchbox calendar sounds fun!
    I still haven’t decided what I’m going to make this year but definitely something I haven’t made yet… maybe crochet or felt ;)
