A homemade DIY stone advent calendar nativity scene is an fun way for kids and families to countdown to prepare for the celebration of Christmas. This craft and display idea uses stones and wooden peg dolls representative of the journey of the wise men.
My advent calendar consists of 24 little houses made out of paper. They can be easily folded flat for storage. Could be an easy way to create an elaborate Christmas village that is easy to store but looks fantastic and festive.
Very simple and sweet. I love that the original post says, "without the religious overtones this could be fun - maybe moving a gnome or star?" Sure, because why would we want religious overtones on Christmas -- you know, CHRIST'S MASS?
