More information


As a fun twist on our popular Year of Play box the advent edition is a way to get the whole family involved in festive fun. With a mixture of activities that involve giving something back, making decorations and getting the kids to write their Christmas cards!

Containing 24 cards the kids will love the element of surprise each day as they open a new envelope and help to plan the activity as a family.

We know it’s a busy time of year and we want this to be fun for everyone. With that in mind we’ve not sealed the cards so the adults can decide what day is best for which activity, to help we’ve also included a handy checklist so you write down the dates AND web pages linking to the craft based activities. We suggest you have a look at the website before you seal the envelopes so you know what’s involved! If you want to do it your own way that’s also fine, it has to suit your family and how you interpret the cards is up to you.

The box is personalised to make it an extra special start to December.

We aim to produce gifts that are 100% recyclable, and we encourage all those enjoying opening envelopes to recycle them after they’ve completed their activities.

Our boxes are 100% recyclable, and are constructed from ‘greyboard’ which is made from a mix of recycled and waste paper. The outer wrap paper is also recyclable.

Where possible the paper we use for our card and envelopes is sourced from FSC certified suppliers.
