Directions

1

Lay the chalk or cork board flat and space twine evenly in five rows. Use the hot glue gun to fix the twine in place.

2

Print and cut out the 25 activity cards. Use the marker to number each one from 1 to 25 and write a fun holiday activity on the back!

3

Fill the paper bags with a few pieces of your favorite Hershey’s holiday candy, like REESE’S Bells, HERSHEY’S Peppermint Bark Bells, or KISSES Milk Chocolates in Holiday Foils.

4

Fold the opening of each bag down and use a clothespin to clip each bag to an activity card and the twine. Repeat with all bags until each is attached to the calendar.

5

Take one down every day to count down to the holidays with a piece of candy and a fun activity.
