How to instructions

  • 1

    Fold down the top edge of the 24 paper bags in different ways. This will give the houses you’ve drawn slightly different appearances.

  • 2

    Lay out the bags on a flat surface and draw on the front with a white Posca pen. Draw on each bag to make it look like a house with a variety of details, such as roof tiles, doors and windows.

  • 3

    Number the bags from 1 to 24.

  • 4

    Attach cute little felt Christmas designs to the bags as decoration.

  • 5

    Fill the bags with little parcels, messages and a sweet or two.

  • 6

    Finish with a little red clothes peg at the top and place out or hang up the entire Christmas calendar.

Make an entire gingerbread city with cute calendar bags! Draw on natural-coloured paper bags with an opaque, white pen to make the bags look like little gingerbread houses. We suggest filling the calendar with assorted surprises. Fill some of the bags with little Christmas gifts, others with sweets, and others with fun, festive activities to do together, such as baking gingerbread biscuits.
