scratch off activity advent

By Melanie of You Are My Fave

Advent calendars are my favorite thing to make for the holidays. With the first day of the countdown only being ten days away, I thought today would be a good time to share this scratch off one that you can make with only a few supplies. It might be the perfect long weekend project to kick off the festivities.

– scissors
– contact paper
– acrylic paint
– dish soap
– paint brush

1. Download the advent and cut out each card.
2. Cut a circle of contact paper that will be large enough to cover the circle you want to scratch off. Stick on top of the circle on the card.
3. Mix two parts of acrylic paint with one part dish soap. Use mixture to paint on top of the contact paper.
4. Hang up with twine and mini clothes pins then merrily scratch off to reveal the festive activity each day of advent.
