Advent Calendar

What is it? For the first time an advent-calendar appeared in European countries, later it was used in America. In Ukraine, such a calendar is just beginning to become popular. The idea of ​​the emergence of a special calendar is intended for children, it shows the remaining days before Christmas. The main essence of the calendar is that the child is waiting for Christmas, every day opens a new window with the number of the coming day and receives a small gift or a sweet surprise. Initially, the calendar was calculated from December 1 to December 25, because in Catholic countries Christmas is celebrated on December 25. And in Orthodox countries, the New Year is first celebrated, because of this, the number of days in the adventure has increased. There are different calendars for 31 days (all of December), for 13 days (from December 19 to December 31) and even for 38 days (from December 1 to January 7). You can choose for yourself any, the main thing is to turn the expectation of holidays into an unusual fairy tale. What are they doing? Today you can find a large number of advents performed on the Internet from a variety of materials.A calendar can be made from anything, such as felt, plastic cups or socks for children, envelopes, cardboard or boxes, matchboxes, paper, children's gloves, even cups, gift bags and small bags, etc.
Master class! I am pleased to offer you an interesting master class of the Advent calendar with step-by-step photos, which will be valid for 13 days, from December 19th - on St. Nicholas Day to December 31st - the onset of the New Year celebration.
 Advent Calendar
The basic design will be made of colored cardboard, each box will be numbered and decorated with a picture with a Christmas theme. So that the countdown of days was even more interesting, I attach a list of tasks for the child for all 13 days at the end of the MC. . Material.In order to make a calendar with your own hands, you need: - ruler; - pencil; - scissors; - colored thick cardboard (A 4); - glue, double-sided tape, brush; - glitter, tinsel; - pictures with new year's theme; - christmas balls (small); - narrow ribbon; - otherlittle things for decoration. II. Making boxes calendar.One finished box consists of 2 parts - the top and bottom. To connect the two halves it is necessary to accurately calculate their size. One box, which will close the other should be more, how to calculate it, read on. For example, now we will make the smallest box, one part is made from a square with sides of 10 cm, and the other - 10.4 cm. Each subsequent box will be larger by 1 cm or 0.5 mm, and so up to 21 cm, to. this is the largest square that can be obtained from sheet A 4. Boxes in this Advent calendar are of different sizes, but you can make them the same, any variations are possible. And so, first we will draw on a colored cardboard a square with sides 10 cm and hold two diagonals.

III. Decorating the boxes with pictures with a new year's theme.You as parents know better what your crumb likes, what kind of cartoon characters he likes more. Therefore, the pictures can be any. In this calendar, I propose to take those images that are associated with the Christmas theme: candy, snowflake, star, bells, baby deer, sleigh, winter tree, angel, Christmas tree, snowman with angel, gifts, Santa Claus and Snow Maiden, Christmas wreath with socks on the doors. To do this, you can print pictures from the Internet or use ready-made stickers, as you like.All other photos show the result of the entire calendar. IV. Numbering the Advent calendar.In this calendar, the boxes are numbered from 1 to 13, you can do, on the contrary, to decrease. For example, there are 13 days left before the New Year, which means that you number the calendar from 13 to 1. You type the glue with a brush and draw the desired number on the boxes next to the picture, sprinkle with glitter (any color, in the photo gray), wait until it dries completely. The winter tree is decorated with beads, the Christmas tree is glued with small ornamental asterisks, and the angel is decorated with berries. V. Decoration, finishing touches.Depending on the size of the resulting boxes, we cut out the shape of a green cardboard tree. With the help of double-sided tape, we fasten the entire structure; we place the tinsel along the contour of the Christmas tree. Small Christmas balls are also attached to scotch tape. We hang up the finished calendar on the tape, threaded through the top corner of the tree. Advent calendar is ready!  Advent Calendar VI. List of tasks for 13 days.Sweet gifts to parents are better to buy on the eve of Advent, but the list of assignments for 13 days is better to prepare in advance.Every day in the next box the kid will find a sweet gift and a task that will have to be performed by himself or with his parents. Do not forget that the child receives a surprise on behalf of Santa Claus. Depending on the weather, tasks can change, and, given the baby's potential - assignments can be made easier or more difficult. 1. Make postcards to your relatives (grandmothers, grandfathers, parents). 2. Decorate the Christmas tree toys. 3. Make snowmen from socks, foil or draw. 4. Make greeting cards with friends. 5.
