Lego Advent Calendar - DIY
So the last few years I have purchased a Lego advent calendar (you know the ones: Lego City, Lego Friends, and Star Wars) for $30-40. I think they are so lame because they make only little tiny things that don't really belong to any set, and they don't really build on each other.
This year I have decided to make my own Lego advent calendar out of a Lego we actually want to build. Lego releases a new installment of their winter village each year, so I purchased a Lego Creator Santa's Workshop.
I was inspired by this advent calendar by Oh Happy Day! I saw on Pinterest, but I knew my boxes had to be large enough to hold lots of Legos.
They provided a free template to their fun flags, so I snagged that too.
I also purchased a few trees from Walmart from 75¢ to $1. I then tried to position my boxes so that each consecutive day would be ready to open without tearing the whole display apart and began gluing. I glued the boxes shut for those curious hands that will undoubtedly peek and shake.
The kids are aching to begin this fun tradition.
