DD1 is 3 and i have a lovely wooden father christmas advent calendar for her, which has little drawers. can anyone give me any ideas on little things i could put in them? i already have mini choc coins and santas but don't just want to put in chocolate.

Depends how little the drawers are...we have put socks and pants in ds's in the past (fav character ones....). small toys/animals (brought a set of glow in the dark ones very cheap and put them in....). Hair clips/slides?

Pretty rubbers/pencil sharpener(safe one)/bobbles/hair ornaments/tiny ornaments(wimsies?)/tiny pencils/Christmas decorations

We put in a piece of paper with something written on that we are going to do that day eg. make fat balls to feed the birds, write christmas cards, go and buy christmas tree, make paper chains, go to pantomime etc etc.

There was a great thread last year which had loads of ideas of activities you could put down, will try and find it.

Glow in the Dark stars to stick on ceilings (some place sell them individually otherwise you can buy a box of them from Hawkins Bazaar).

lots of good ideas, thanks. like the idea tat they don't all have to be material things, will add some activities too.

we've got 2 small wooden Christmas trees for the dds, and decorations to hang on them.

we put the decorations for the trees inot the drawers, and they get to build up their tree each day

<am not an absolute killjoy re: choc btw, but dds are multiple food intolerant so have had to find other solutions>

we put coins in DD's and then she puts the coins in a money box each morning and then buys herself something in the sales!
Love your idea LostGirl!

also reminded that i got a couple of tiny named decorations in the sale last year, can add those.
