DIY Lego Advent Calender
Happy December 1st. I have a special post today. Do your kids love legos? Surprise them with this Christmas Tree in a 24 day Advent Calender. Instructions, supply list and printable daily tutorials, below.
My very creative, talented, engineer, friend, Annika, told me years ago that every year she broke down a lego kit and re-assembled an Advent Calender from it, for her two children. I was dazzled by her ambition but, thought that this was something I’d never do. Last year, something changed: our kids had become so incredibly interesting in Legos, I decided it was time to try and I created 3 Lego Advent calenders from 3 kits, for the each of the kids. These were huge hits. This year, I simplified. I raided the boys extra Lego supply, built a Christmas tree and then, turned it into our family Lego calender and wanted to share it with you, too! This is perfect, if you are looking for a special, last minute, calender. Chances are, you have all the you need, already, in the house!
