  • Digital download
  • Digital file type(s): 2 PDF, 2 ZIP

This is a DIY nativity advent calendar for all ages. It tells the Christmas story over 25 days. Each page includes a part of the Christmas story written in simple words and blank space to art journal.


🎨 Creative, personal advent calendar.
🎨 Small size, ideal for travelling. The 25 pages are 4"x6".
🎨 Kid-friendly Christmas craft activity.
🎨 Simple, black and white digital file.
🎨 Undated. Make this project an annual tradition.


🎨 There are two versions: one is vertical and the other horizontal.

🎨 The PDF files with this listing are both are nine 8.5" x 11" PDF pages. The text is the same on both versions, it's just the page orientation that changes. The last image shows a sample page so you can see what it looks like printed.

🎨 There are also two zip folders: One folder includes the horizontal JPG and PNG files and the other folder includes the vertical JPG and PNG files.


🎨 Print it before December and work on throughout the month.

🎨 I recommend printing on heavy-weight cardstock.

🎨 Print as many copies as you want, for personal use only (do not resell it). Please print as many copies as you want for your church or school groups.


You could leave your Advent Art Journal unbound, and prop it up on a desk. Or you could punch holes in it and use binder rings to make a book. Or take it to a print shop and have it wire bound (that's probably the best option for travelling with it).

We are having a great time with this. I was surprised that my older kids were on board, but they are. After years of good intentions around advent we are finally doing something cool( and it took almost no effort on my part). May be why its happening!

Stumbled across this item when doing a search for a traditional advent calendar, and I'm sure my granddaughters, who love to draw, will enjoy this. It was easy to print off. Just wish I'd seen there was also a 5" x 7" version as well before I ordered this smaller size--but that's "my bad". Not even "bad". Just wishin'! This is still pretty cool.
