Cardboard and scissors
With the help of an adult, the advent calendar can be created in a really simple way. Just take a large sheet of cardboard and glue on it 24 sheets of paper cut in the same format thanks to a scissors (glue only the top, you can also use adhesive tape). Every day the child will have to lift a piece of paper to find out what is written under it.
