Christmas is fast approaching and this year I wanted to make an advent calendar for Leo to enjoy for the run up to Christmas. 

There's no better way to count down to the Big Day than an advent calendar. I remember as a kid, both my brother and I looked forward to the first day of December when we received our Christmas advent calendars and we would eat our chocolates before going to school. 

Leo is nearly 2.5yrs old so hopefully he will understand and appreciate Christmas just a little bit more this year.

I would personally go for a monochrome version but since it's for Leo, I might just add a few Christmas colours to make it a bit more fun! I'm planning to fill the calendar up with a mixture of sweets, chocolates and small nik nak toys. 

I started searching for ideas and there are so many great ideas out there and here are some of my favourite picks! (I've linked them all to their pages for free printables so why not make one too!)


Most of my Mauritian readers will already know most of these facts about their home country but I thought it would be interesting to do a slightly different one to those you will find on pretty much every tourist/country information website about Mauritius. So here goes!
