Printable Candy Advent Calendar

By: Patty Thurlby
Printable Candy Advent Calendar

"Print out whimsical Christmas themed numbers and put magnets on the backs of wrapped Christmas candy to make a fun advent calendar. This project is easy and would make a fun afternoon activity to do with the kids and hopefully they don't snack too much so you have enough candy to put on the calendar! I got the printout numbers on Etsy and I give the link to get the exact printout but you can make your own numbers or get the kids to write them out for you!"
