  1. Advent Calendar - Laminate the silver card, then trim to 22cm square. Peel the dome Christmas stickers from their packaging and stick in a 25 piece grid in the centre of the silver laminated square; leave a 1cm gap between each motif.

    Snip 25 squares, 2.5cm each, from pink card. Adhere a bauble and a number from one to 25 onto each. Place the assembled squares into a laminating pocket, using the grid on the cutting board as guide. Place them in rows leaving 1cm between. Although this is somewhat fiddly, it will make cutting them out easier.

    Trim the squares with a 5mm clear laminated border all the way round. Fix a sticky dot to the back of each. Because these are removable, the pink squares can be placed over each of the dome stickers and then taken off for the count down to Christmas day. Place four sticky dots on the back of the larger silver square and fasten to the fridge door or a door accessible to your child. - All materials from the Range
