This is an advent calendar with a difference that children and adults alike will enjoy. It is completely handmade, including the paper, which has also been printed with different colours and a subtle motif. The boxes have been cut out, painstakingly put together and a number added for the each of the days leading up to Christmas. The company that makes this delightful item supports a school for children with learning disabilities and a large proportion of their raw materials are recycled. Traditional techniques are used for the making of the paper by the one hundred people employed at their premises in Jaipur, Rajasthan. In addition to statutory wages employees receive medical insurance and a pension scheme. For a great family tradition that can be repeated year on year, add one, or even a few little surprises to each box depending on the number of family members involved, and watch the excitement unfold. A lovely way to learn about the spirit of Christmas, plus about numbers, sharing and the concept of time, as well as making a fab decoration that you can keep for next year.
