I have finally got myself sorted for my advent pocket bunting just a few days late.
I made this bunting last year...
so I thought I would share some ideas for things to put in either your advent calendar if you have one that fits small treats, or you could use these ideas for stocking or santa sack presents. Most of the things I got from the supermarket (yes the irony of the toothbrush surrounded by sugary treats!) so it wasn't too much extra work finding the bits and bobs. So here are my ideas plus a few extra ones that I haven't got for the photo...
*mini treat cereal boxes
*hair bobbles/hair ties
*water bottle treat (my kids are always asking me to buy these water buddies so they'll be v excited to see these!)
*mini playdough and cookie cutters
*popcorn (you could add a note saying 'it's Christmas movie night tonight)
*bandaids (my kids have an obsession with bandaids)
*candy canes, chocolate santa's, gold coins, mini chocolate bars
*a handmade or store bought decoration for each child
*lego mini figurines
*stickers and cut out stars to decorate (you could put these in a pocket on the day you are decorating your Christmas tree)
*christmas bead bracelet or necklace
*Christmas cards to write to family and friends
*other ideas are...
- new Christmas books
- new summer PJ's
- new underwear
- instant kiwi $1 scratchie
So hope that helps if you are getting ready to do your christmas shopping or making :)
