Another toy for my daughter’s grandchildren – from plans again found at http://www.furnitureplans.com/pi_products/5200.
Santa drops down the chimney as Christmas approaches, ending up in the fireplace. The two boys take it in turns pulling out the bricks for each day of Advent.
I have a picture of this on my personal website and when my son’s grandchildren saw it, they asked for one as well, so I’ll be starting again soon to meet the start of December deadline.

Hah, that’s a great little advent calendar!

I can’t tell from the picture though – is there anything that holds the Santa inside the chimney (like a dado along each side?) Or does he stay in pretty good as it is?

He stays in pretty well. I did consider dadoes, but then the youngsters wouldn’t be able to take Santa out easily – he would have to be slid up and out the top. so I left it as the original design.

Nice, simple Advent calendar. I am sure the kids will have a lot of fun with this for many years.
