Hip2Save This Holiday Guest Post submitted by reader, Laura:
Our family loves celebrating Christmas and we try to make the most of the weeks leading up to the holiday by doing fun and meaningful activities together. One cute and clever craft idea that we make is a Bubble Wrap Advent Calendar. Both my kids and I enjoy making this frugal craft and counting down by popping one bubble per day!
Large-size bubble wrap
Round multi-colored label stickers
Use seven rows of the bubble wrap and cut out a Christmas tree shape. Have your child carefully use a marker to write out the numbers 1-24 on the labels. Place one sticker on each bubble. You can place them in number order or mix it up and put them in random order and hunt for the correct number each day. It’s that simple! Now you just have to resist the temptation to pop all the bubbles at once! My kids and I love this simple craft. It would also be great for large groups.
