Usborne's Advent Calendar

In case you haven't noticed, it's the 1st of December today and that means... advent calendars!

We've actually got a couple of advent calendars we trot out every year and the children's grandma usually buys them a chocolate one (I suspect she's keeping it at her house this year - worried I'll eat the chocolate, no doubt), but when I saw this Usborne Advent Calendar I had to buy it.

It's not a book, it's a cardboard gatefold picture of a busy street scene. Behind each window there's a little picture to colour and the main street can be coloured too (it's black and white with some colour here and there).

It's so pretty that I'm not actually going to let my kids colour it, at least not this year.
