We are approaching December and Christmas. It is wonderful! Today we want to share our advent calendar with you. All you need is a bunch of toilet rolls and our santa templates. The templates are available to download from us as an early Christmas present for you!
You need 24 toilet rolls, santa templates , scissors, tape, string and thin colored paper for the hats.
1. First print out and cut out the templates you have choosen. Make simple bottoms for the tp rolls of white paper and attach them with tape.
2. Tape the santas to the tp rolls.
3. Choose which santa to go with what date and write the date on the belly of the santa. We have made a simple hat to each santa a tub of a piece of paper and tie a string around it. Make sure the hat does not become too narrow. You should be able to take it off, so that you can fill with little treats.
In Sweden we have a tradition of letting the kids eat candy on Saturdays. Today we like to show what we amused ourselves with last Saturday. Check this out!
You need candy! You can pick almost anything but you need candy in the shape of straps and strings, as well as large marshmallows.
We’re making candy sushi! Instead of rice, we use marshmallows. Instead of salmon, we use candy fishes. Beautiful, isn’t it!
Some of the candy pieces were too long. The easiest way to get them shorter is to cut them with scissors. Make sure the scissors are clean, the sushi is to be eaten when it’s ready. We also used scissors to make holes in the marshmallows.
Our table is covered in sugar, but it doesn’t matter when you get sushis this nice.
Our candy sushis kept us busy for a long and enjoyable time. Need I say that our sushi was a success? Perhaps it might be a good idea for kids partys.
But what happened? – Waiter, there’s a jelly rat in my sushi …
In Sweden daylight is getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s soon time for Halloween. Let us show you how to light up your evenings with your own spooky Halloween lanterns! This tutorial was first published at The Southern Institute.
