|Make an advent calendar that's great for kids with allergies|
Here's a really quick idea for an advent calendar that uses your own candy or treats - great if your child has an allergy to chocolate, dairy or sugar.
About 1 metre of ribbon
2 craft buttons
Craft glue or hot glue gun
24 mini pegs
Blank stickers or scrap booking numbers
1. Glue a button onto one end of the ribbon; this will make it easier to hang up the advent calendar by putting a pin through the button hole or sticking blu tack to the button
|Gluing the button onto the end of the advent calendar|
2. Thread the mini pegs onto the ribbon
|To make it easier to thread on the pegs; dab a little glue onto the end of the ribbon to stop it fraying|
|You can use any candy on this advent calendar - I chose these mints for their red and green - colored wrappers|
4. Peg on your candies and hang your advent calendar on the wall - easy!
