I made two calendars, as an experiment. One with little Christmas scriptures tied to each ribbon, and the other just with the chocolates.
As you can see, this makes a very loooonnnggg calendar. But my kids think it's lovely. Today we cut our first chocolate off!
Here's a closeup of the calendar with the scriptures. This takes a bit more time to make than the candy-only one.
On thing though, the essortment directions say to use 3 feet of plastic wrap. I needed more like 4-5. So, best to cut too much than too little. I had my 6 year old boy help me curl the ribbons on the calendars. He enjoyed it.
