Advent Calendar Resources
By Ruth | Oct 25, 2021
Here is a list of all the items and resources you could possibly need to do the activities in the advent calendar!
All items you will likely already find in your house! You will not need all of these unless you do all 3 activities on each card each day, for example the bread flour is only required if you are making the edible playdough which you would generally only do if your child still mouths. You could look at the cards and decide which activity you are going to do then just tick off the things from this list that you need to collect. Have festive fun learning through play!
