Turn a wooden yardstick into the perfect Advent Calendar for boys! Countdown to Christmas with a small treat or tool everyday.
Supplies For Wooden Yardstick Advent Calendar
25 small tool and or candies
2 small eye hooks
25 furniture nails
1 wooden yardstick
ribbon or wire for hanging
With a saw cut the wooden yardstick at 26 inches.
Screw in eye hooks on the top of the yardstick at the 1 inch and 25 inch marks.
Place furniture nails along each inch of the yardstick. Place something hard behind the yardstick and push the furniture nail all the way in the yardstick, but not through to the back.
Placing something hard like an upside down metal pan will stop the furniture nail from going all the way through the yardstick.
Place ribbon or wire through eye hooks for hanging. Hang a treat on each furniture nail and you have a fun way to countdown the holiday!
