Our first arts & craft activity in this term – Christmas advent calendar.
I thought it’s not only a great way for the children to learn to write dates and month of December in Chinese but also wonderful for them to recap them when counting dates down.
Children loved making stuff and this just couldn’t be better instead of those chocolate sort of advent calendar in the shop.
This cute stocking advent calendar can be hanged on the door, by the window or on the tree if you have one up early. I didn’t want to make it too long so we have 12 tiny stockings that has 1st day to 12th on one side, then 13th to 24th on the other. You take down the stockings one a day for the first 12 days (don’t throw this away just yet). You hang them all up again once 12th was off and now you can throw them away one by one starting from 13th. Hope you will like it!
Other simple advent calendars we made for other classes.
