The Crazy Quick Baby Advent

 Morning All,

Now it's time for the Baby Advent.

Since babies in general have no clue as to why everyone is so excited, it doesn't take much to please them. The other issue with babies is they can't eat lollies and Max has a reaction to chocolate.

I came up with this idea as a way to make sure he gets to join in and since it made from cans of baby food, it's also handy for when we are jumping around to all the activities at this time of year


  • 2 inch circle punch
  • Christmas Scrap book paper
  • Scrap book advent stickers
  • 24 cans of baby food

Arrange the Christmas tree shape

 Punch the circles, the 2 inch punch sat perfectly in the rim of the can

Arrange the circles as desired

Add the Stickers

Then jingle the bells your done!

This literally took me 15 minutes.

DIY Disaster or Delight? I'm going with delight, it's easy and functional, double win! As for Max I don't know that he will care so long as his belly is full.

Did you give your babies advents or wait till they were older?

Also don't forget all week it's

And if you missed it

  1. What an incredibly sweet advent calendar. With those cheeks, Max definitely looks as though he likes to have a full belly :). Another GREAT and easy project!

  2. If you did this with baby food Jars, you could wash the jars after use, and then reuse the next year with pieces of a bigger toy or lots of little toys etc...
    Very cute idea!

  3. I love BOTH the advents you've posted! Creative and cute!

  4. That's so CUTE Mel! I love that you didn't leave the baby out, lol!

  5. Definitely a delight Mel! I love this, it looks awesome :) Your bubbas are going to love it too!

  6. Too cute! I've never done advent calendars before but I bet the babies will love it!


  7. I love both the advents you've posted! Creative and cute!

  8. No wonder Max is such a happy boy! You are a wonderful mom to make him his own advent calendar! Go Mel! Yay Max!

  9. Hi Mel, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  10. Cute! I never did advent calendars with my kids- not sure why, lazy mom, I guess.

  11. That is such a cute and funny idea! I'm sure your little one will love it! I don't think we started with the advent calendars until our girls were a little older!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a fabulous week!

  18. This is so cute! I don't know that I've ever seen cans of baby food, but I think it would work with jars too. Either way it's adorable.

  22. Such a sweet idea, thanks for linking it up!

  23. Ha! I totally never game my babies advents! They're almost grown and we don't have one! I have bought the chocolate ones in the past, but I can't find them where we live now...


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, between housework and 5 kids, this is the only thing I get out of bed for ;)
