Christmas Advent Calendar
• Advent calendar templates (2) on white card (see overleaf)
• Colouring pencils or crayons
• Brass split pins
1. Giving each Ladybird a front and a back to the advent calendar, let them colour it in as they see fit.
2. When they are finished give them a pair of scissors to cut out the two circles (with supervision).
3. Assist each Ladybird by putting the brass split pin into the centre to bring the circles together.
4. Let them spin the back around to show how the countdown to Christmas works.
