Christmas Advent Calendar: Children around the world
With this printable Advent calendar, live a great 24-day adventure as you wait for Christmas with puzzles and clues every day, while discovering children from all over the world.
Around the world Advent Calendar principle
How about changing from the traditional Advent calendar? This year, your children have 24 days to unravel this intriguing Christmas story. Each day, give your child 1 puzzle to solve. This one will show him a place in the house where he will find 1 chocolate (to congratulate him for solving the puzzle) and 1 clue. Each day, the clue found will be pasted into the advent calendar provided in the file which will allow it to track the time left before Christmas. He will have to gather all the clues to unravel this incredible adventure!
The reindeer did something stupid. They ate a piece of Santa’s list, containing all the information needed for his tour on the night of December 24! Fortunately the elves quickly intervened! However, 24 children have disappeared from the list and will therefore not be able to receive their gifts this Christmas! What if your name was one of them? Each day, find the identity of a child thanks to your clues. Will you be able to complete Santa’s list in time? Travel around the world and discover the different countries where each child comes from (thanks to their ID).

The printing of the calendar must be done in color, which is necessary to solve certain puzzles. Print on A4 sheets. Print only the necessary sheets. For example, explanations do not need to be printed. Our games, like our calendars, are on a white background and optimized to not consume too much ink. The cutting puzzles are on 12 pages, with 2 puzzles per page in order to use less sheets.
Everything is included in the file. No additional material is required except for scissors and glue that you already have at home. Plan on 24 chocolates to hide with the clue.
One calendar is enough for one or more children: they can solve the puzzles together. Just remember to hide 1 chocolate per child. Intended mainly for elementary school children, younger children will be able to help and find the hiding place with their big brother or sister.
