DIY rustic advent calendar ,when Christmas is more than the day, its the lead up too.
This advent calendar is different, because it is about being with each other rather than being 'treat' orientated.
In saying that we do include a packet of delicious dark chocolate ruffles, to put in the pouches as you like.
As you, your partner or children look at it each day and pull out a 'together activity' you' ll be encouraged by a whole season of warmth and love. They may come up with their own suggestions, creating treasured memories.
All the pouches are fair trade, handmade and from hessian burlap, it can be reused with your added creative flair each year.
It is a small activity that not only touches your family, it touches people far beyond who you know... the kindness spreads.
