Who says advent calendars are for Xmas only?!
It's not quite finished but I made an advent calendar for the kids for diwali (yes I know its just gone) but will use it next year!
Each tub shares a little bit of the story leading to navratri and then diwali. The tubs are big enough to put bits in for the kids like you would an advent calendar. I can't take credit for the story or number cards but the rest is my handywork.
I am forever looking for different ways to speak and teach the kids about our culture and this was a brilliant idea to mix "east meets west"!
I purchased the number and story template which sits inside from etsy:
The board and tubs were from Amazon.
