  1. 1. Classic Printable, easy-to-assemble, Advent calendar with 24 windows to open that will reveal 24 Christmas items to delight and set the mood!  | HERE
    • 2. Print as a puzzle, counting game! Magnetic Printable Advent Calender: Printable, super-easy, calendar with 24 puzzle pieces for your kids at home or in the classroom, can use to countdown and assemble daily! | HERE
      3. Print the daily prompts to use with your own Advent Calendar, for your kids to use as a prompt to draw daily or use each daily discovery as a“daily treasure hunt.”


  1. Print both pages of the Canon Printable Advent Calendar (2 page Printable Template above)
  2. – Look for the the window outlines on the front page of the Advent Calendar.
    Using an X-Acto knife, cut along these window outlines 24 times to create 24 windows.
  • – To cut each window: Cut the top and bottom of each window (trace the printed template) 
  • – When cutting the right-hand side of the window, it is important to leave a small area to serve as the clasp that will hold the window into place. This blank area which should remain uncut, is specified as a blank space on the window template. 
  • Do not cut the left-hand side of the window. This line serves as the fold to be used on the date when the window will be opened.
  • – Apply adhesive to the outer edge of the Advent Calendar. 
  • – Line up both pages and adhere to one another.
  • – Press firmly to make sure that the edges have been sealed.
  1. Your Advent Calendar is ready to use: Do not open it until December 1.
