Christmas time is a very exciting time in the Tink house, and we Tink’s do Christmas well. We love to decorate the entire house, every room, even the toilet! We hang up lights, watch Christmas movies and make gingerbread houses and while I pride myself on being Mrs Claus herself, one tradition does make me cringe…. the advent calendar. If feeding children chocolate each and every morning for 24 days is not bad enough, the cream on the cake is then watching the sugar highs and lows which always lead to tantrums because I won’t let them open just one more. I try very hard to fall in love with the advent calendar because as a child my grandparents always made sure we had one. I can clearly remember being so excited opening a new window everyday but alas now I have my own two children I’ve been hunting for a substitute that is more treat than tantrum. Recently all my dreams came true when I opened a package from my good friends at Smiggle, to find 2 advent calendars both of which were chocolate free! 24 fabulous days of super cute treats that will keep kids excited without the highs and lows of a chocolate frenzy, not to mention save you the dentist bill. Each window is filled with all the incredible products you can expect from Smiggle. Bright fun colours and products they can use to get creative at home. Amazing value for money, considering each product they can keep and use.
Each of the Smiggle advent calendars also come with a Willy Wonka Style golden ticket for a chance to win $1000 to spend with Smiggle. Such a cool idea with back to school already around the corner and a very expensive time of year.
So although it’s not December 1st I literally couldn’t wait and the kid inside me just had to have a little peek and look at what I found inside!!
Now before I go crazy I’m going to put them away until the first but in the meantime I’m giving one lucky reader the chance to win their own Smiggle advent calendar valued at $39.95.
Simply share with me why you would like to win? I will choose my favourite answer and announce a winner on Monday 4/12/17 at 9am.
