This year I made a Lego star wars Advent calendar this year for my Family that I found on one of my favorite sites Pinterest. It was made by Living Locurto She has a lot of great printables and crafts for the holidays.
My little family are Big Star Wars and Lego fans so the one we chose to make was perfect for our countdown. Thank You Living Locurto for your creativity *Big Hugs*.
I also got inspired by another creative Mom –Miracle Momma – when she made some golden tickets for her kids as a surprise to hop in the Mini Van and look at all the different creative Christmas lights. Unfortunately we don’t have a Minivan so I know my Son would be highly questionable about the ticket *LOL*. So after I read that story I found a great light show close by us that was in Los Gatos that could be a great advent holiday activity. After I make those first 4 tickets I thought “Why stop here?” So I collected some advent activities via Pinterest and put them on my Christmas board and also made my some of my own activities for our Calendar. Since I have an interactive 8 year old boy who lives and Loves Legos along with his Tablet I decided to make it interactive for him and let him see visual what we were going to do each day. I think it’s going to be more fun for him each day when he gets to open each tab. So let’s get started and get our “Creative Flow” going.
Download the blank tickets below. Click HERE to download tickets in a PDF form.
After I wrote each Activity for for each day I added the QR to each ticket. By using this QR code generator and copying the image and pasting the code to each ticket in photoshop.
If you don’t have access to photoshop you can print out the tickets and write each Activity on each ticket and glue the QR codes to the tickets. I would use the 200×200 image size for pasting on the tickets through Photoshop.
Here’s an example of the first one I made for The Fantasy of Lights Tickets. I left the Admit One lettering so it would look like an actual ticket stub.
and when you scan this QR code it will bring you to the Fantasy of Lights site.
You can make them as personable as possible to fit your kids interests and it’s also a great way for your whole family to get involved in the activities together.
