52 Create – Craftvent Calendar, Day 24

52 Create, my weekly creative output for 2011.  Continuing along with my “Craftvent” calendar for my 2 year old daughter.  Simply put, it’s an advent calendar filled with crafts, all home made, many will be joint projects so she gets some fun of making stuff as well.

Day 24 – When I was a kid, I distinctly remember the chocolate on the 24th of the Advent Calendar was about 4 times the size as the others.  This made you long for Christmas even more.  The only problem was my brother and I would share advent calendars, so whoever got the odd days lost out big time.  Probably why we only got the one with the large chocolate on the 24th once…  Anyways, I thought I’d go out with a bang on this one.  For the last day of my Craftvent Calendar, I made my daughter a simple dutch style doll house out of cardboard for her “little babies“.  She was pretty blown away when she came home to find her house.  Sadly we’re moving in a month and there definitely won’t be room for the house in our bags, I’m sure I’ll make her another one whenever we finally settle down somewhere…
