How To Use The Christmas Advent Calendar Printables

  1. Print the Christmas Coloring Page – found below.
  2. Print the Christmas Word Search – found below.
  3. Choose which style Advent Calendar Numbers you like. Do you want to cut shapes or want the straight forward squares you can cut with a paper cutter? Which design do you prefer?
  4. Print our Advent Calendar Numbers – found below.
  5. Cut the numbers using either precision scissors or a paper cutter (depending on which style you chose).
  6. Place on wrapped gifts!
  7. Print the Christmas Advent Calendar Care Package Box Decor – found below.
  8. Cut the shapes!
  9. Use a 1/8″ hole punch and punch two holes at the top of each Christmas light.
  10. Use jute to thread through the holes, leaving a generous tail at each end (in case your college student wants to hang the lights for decoration).
  11. Adhere the Box Decor to the inside flaps of your care package box using an adhesive applicator.

You did it! Just load your Advent Calendar Gifts into the box to send to your college student!

But WAIT … only send the Advent Gifts for the days your college student will be at school. Save the rest for when they come home!

For example … my college freshman will come home December 15th. I will send Advent Gifts 1 – 14 and keep Advent Gifts 15 – 24 here, at home!
