DIY Superhero Advent Calendar
This printable diy superhero advent calendar is so easy, and a great way to personalise your own Christmas countdown.
Last year, a friend moved house at the beginning of December. As a little housewarming gift to help her son settle his new bedroom, I made him an advent calendar. As he loves spiderman, it had to have a superhero theme.
- Paper (standard printer paper is fine)
- Double sided tape
- Computer and colour printer
- Advent calendar contents
I used powerpoint to make the templates, and downloaded a bunch of superhero graphics from the internet. (Just google superman / batman/ spiderman etc). I can’t share them here as they aren’t my images, but there are loads of free high quality images available. Thank you internet.
On each powerpoint slide, I made two rectangles. Mine are 10cm high and 20cm wide, so that I will end up with 12cm square pouches. On each rectangle I put a different superhero picture – which will be one side of the pouch, and a christmassy message and the number 1-25 on the other side. Made ended up being quite small, and difficult to get your pressies inside so I would suggest a 12cm square may be better.
Cut them out to make the rectangles.
Fold over to make squares. Add double sided tape around 3 sides of one of the squares.
Remove the cover tape on two sides to make a pouch.
Fill with your favourite treats and seal up the edges.One side has superhero pictures. The other side the numbers and a christmassy message.
These are so easy to make with any theme of your choice. Or if you don’t have a printer, you could decorate with crayons / wash / stickers etc. What would you decorate yours with?
Nicholas STILL remembers your wonderfully thoughtful superhero advent calendar with great happiness, so it definitely did the job to help him settle after our move 😀 Anne xxx
