Advent Calendar

We’re guessing lots of you opened the first doors on your advent calendars yesterday! Advent calendars count down the days to Christmas, with each door revealing a picture or present of some kind (usually small toys or chocolate, though there are some with puzzles, poems and other intriguing items hidden in each box!).

For this week’s writing dare, start a story with the words: “When I opened my advent calendar that morning, I never expected to find…”

Whether your character finds a curious clue, strange creature or something else altogether in their advent calendar, we’re sure you’ll have a fantastically festive time coming up with something creative while you countdown to Christmas!

Send us your stories by email, Twitter or Facebook. We’ll share our favourites here and on social media.
