Magnetic Muffin Tin Advent Calendar

Written by Leslie Means

Guys – how cute is this!  My sister, Linds and her daughter made the sweetest Advent calendar.  This is such a simple activity your kids will love.  Chances are you have a muffin tin in your cupboard which makes this project budget friendly, too.  Under each day is a treat with a note.

I love it.

Here’s how she did it.

Supplies:

  • 24 mini muffin tin – already had in my cupboard.  (or two  – 12 mini muffin tins)
  • adhesive magnetic sheets (I used 4 5×8 sheets from Hobby Lobby or Office Depot) – about $3 per sheet
  • cardstock – got mine at Target for $4
  • letter stickers – Archivers for $5
  • I used a scalloped circle punch for the 2nd cardstock in cream color.  I think it was 1 1/2 inch diameter – already had in my craft stuff.

Instructions:   

Cut 2 1/2 inch circles from cardstock.  Stick on magnet sheeting and cut around circles.  Use a glue stick to attach the second circle and stickers.  Tie a ribbon at the top to hang.  I have Hersey Kisses in each hole along with a simple activity for the day.  For example, on the 4th it says “Watch Rudolph in Christmas jammies”   🙂
