Mermaids` Makings

Christmas Calendar 2011

Our last year`s Christmas Calendar is here.

As we are going away in mid December we won`t take it out and instead of that we have thirteen books. It`s a kind of countdown really. So every day lil mermaid will choose one package to open. As she LOVES books she will be very happy. And that`s not all. As she LOVES craft as well we will make  or draw something every day depending on the theme of the book.

I saw this book christmas calendar idea on the net last year. They used  books from their own bookselves. I thought it was a good idea as you tend to read Christmas books only at Christmas time. And why not read them again.

As we didn`t have enough Chritmas books I bought them from charity shops.

We love the idea of a thrifty Christmas and going back to the simplicity of Christmas in days  gone by.

I wrapped the books in brown paper and decorated them with snowflakes (paper doilies).
