For a fun advent calendar this year my agent Anita and I put our thinking caps on back in June and came up with a slightly new idea on an popular traditional one.

As the reindeer is a well-loved Christmas animal I painted a child-like reindeer in glorious cranberry red. Then I added little wooden drawers with tiny gold knobs on which I then numbered.  As I worked I found I was drawn to painting the drawers in different quirky sizes which appealed to the kid in me!

Next we needed some snowflakes for some seasonal magic. Finally our reindeer got a tinkling bell to herald the Christmas season.

Our poster which is 17 x 23 inches approx is a real focal point for kids during the run-up to Christmas.

On gorgeously smooth and creamy super-heavyweight paper it shows off the reindeer to a tee.


Each day they get to write in one of the boxes what special advent activity they will be doing. To spark ideas for festive fun we also created a suggestion list which also comes with your Christmas Advent kit along with an opaque white pen, some lush East of India washi tape to fix your poster to the wall!

On every advent day write in your chosen Christmas activity!
