It’s our favourite time of the year again! So how have you been? Yup, we took a loooooong hiatus due to our schedules and now that we are (more or less) settled down, let’s hope we can continue where we left off. And what better time to restart again than during the Christmas season!
And YES! Mommy had planned out the countdown to Christmas, bringing little Santa (bought from Daiso) to join in the fun!
To start it off, we need to build our advent calendar and Christmas tree. I’ve decided to use these nice coloured paper with different designs on both side (which I bought from Daiso again!) and fold it into triangular pyramids to form the tree.
Here’s the simple instructions:
Fold the square paper into half, and then the other side half again to get the “lines”. Then fold one of the diagonal into half. Do note that the folding of the diagonals and the rectangle half is in OPPOSITE direction. All these “lines” will make the following steps easier.
Next, fold the 4 corners towards the middle (top left picture). Open it up and as shown in the top right picture, fold the paper in half and fold down the diagonal line in it. For the 3 flaps, simply fold it in.
To note, there isn’t any base for this pyramid. You can stack them up and it does looks a bit like Christmas tree too!
Little milkie helped to fold some of the pyramids as well as write out the numbers too!
And then we pasted the pyramids onto the wall, at 2 edges, so that I can slot the ‘instructions’ of each day at the other side of the triangle. As the paper is very light, I only use normal scotch tape.
After some simple decorations and we are done!
Say HELLO! Let’s start counting down!
