Every year during the most unhealthy month, a chocolate filled calendar sits in pride of place in our living room. I tried to use the traditional calendar but most retailers don't sell them or the children don't enjoy them as much.
However, this year whilst reading a local publication I heard about a fun filled Advent Calendar which takes the form of a traditional calendar only, instead of months, you turn the page every day. But the beauty of the '24 Sleeps 'Till Christmas' is that it is brightly coloured, every day there is something exciting for children to complete, whether it's learning and singing the words to a Christmas jingle, or a fun game to see how long it will take Santa Claus to fly around the world delivering presents.
The 24 Sleeps 'Till Christmas Advent Calendar is simply brilliant. There won't be a chocolate in sight, until the Big Day, which means the kids can enjoy them more, and it also means they will wake up excited every single day anticipating the challenge that lies on the next page they turn.
A great idea.

I am so grateful I found this website and product. I just wish December the 1st would hurry up so we can enjoy the count down all that more this year.
One happy Daddy! X
