Advent Calendars

When did advent calendars change from opening a little card door to show a
Christmassy picture or a saying, to those loaded with sweeties or themed with Peppa Pig or Lego?

As an alternative place a selection of goodies appropriate to the age (children or adult!) in a bag and use either a magnetic calendar or a standard paper calendar for the month of December. Move the disc or cross off the date each day and dip into a bag or box of wrapped mini presents for the treat.

As a bonus the calendar can be used again and again and the theme can change as children grow up. 

And for those beautiful, but a little impractical wooden drawer or fabric pocket advent calendars, it saves the problem each year of finding suitably sized items!
