pom-pom advent calendar

This project is intended for kids ages 3+.
Step 1

Click here to download and print the template; then cut out the 24 number circles, the tree and star patterns.

Step 2

Trace the tree pattern onto a piece of green construction paper. Cut out the shape.

Step 3

Cut out a small rectangle to be the trunk of the tree from brown construction paper.

Step 4

Trace the star pattern onto a piece of yellow construction paper. Cut out the shape.

Step 5

Use glue to attach the tree and the tree trunk to the center of the canvas; then add the star on top. Press firmly and let the glue dry.

Step 6

Use glue to attach the number circles to the canvas. Attach the circles with numbers 1-12 to the white part of the canvas, scattered around the tree, to look like snow. Then, place numbers 12-24 on the tree. Let dry.

Step 7

Use markers to add details and embellishments, such as a garland, to the tree.

Step 8

Dip your finger in Blue Sky paint, and use it to add dots around the white canvas to look like snow is falling around the tree. Dip a small paintbrush into the paint and create snowflake shapes on the canvas. Let dry.
TIP: To use the advent calendar, glue a pom-pom to the numbers on the canvas, starting with 1 and finishing with 24. After the 24th pom-pom has been glued, the next day is Christmas! Be sure to let the glue dry before hanging or displaying the calendar.
