Crystal Christmas Advent Calendar

Icy Crystal Christmas Advent Calendar

We like making advent calendars that work as exciting christmas decoration in the house, bringing a bit of magic to the season and entertainment for children. Our previous Christmas street advent calendar is a fun little town you can build a story around and play with. This time, we’re creating something specially inspired by the incredible crystal cave, Cueva de los Cristales in Mexico! Ok, the result is nothing like that awe-inspiring spectacle, but it’s cute and more manageable. ^ ^

I recently made some pastel colored crystals using our gradient papers and I loved the multi color look, but for this one, we wanted icy and wintery, white, blue and turquoise. I ended up adding a bit of pink though for a more festive look.

There are 24 little boxes each with a lid you can open and shut, with a number in the corner from 1 to 24. Create a lovely icy crystal decoration for the season and hide your treats and activity ideas inside. Children will have to find the right number each day and open for the hidden surprise.

The boxes are quite tiny. I tried to be economical with paper so two boxes fit on a printed sheet. The gradation shouldn’t take up much ink but the result will create a colorful and festive display perfect for the Holidays.
