Here’s a very easy way to make a Christmas calendar without necessarily using a big board or hard cardboard (which I didn’t have) – and one easy to stash away for next year.

Make 24 colored-paper pockets as shown below. Thread them on a stiffer ribbon and use thumb-tacks to secure to a door, a message board or any smooth surface.

Label each pocket with the numbers you can print out from HERE. Fill them with small treats – and when those are over, Christmas will be here, bringing the gifts we all wished for.
