This year, I made an Advent calendar on a winter theme. everything is built with construction paper and white glue. There's a bunch of trees as they are easy and fast to make, and you need a lot to create a forest.

It is mostly filled with cookies and chocolates, things tiny enough to fit inside the trees and log houses. The bigger items are inside the mountains.

The school with a bell on the roof, a modern log cabin with wide windows, a traditional Swiss chalet.

An A frame log house, a tiny mazot from the Alps, another chalet and a fairy house( or maybe a girl's house?) in the back.

Wow. What detail you have going on. A totally cool idea. I hope you wax papered/saran wrapped the inside goodies, so the houses and such can be re-used again. I rocked you. We need a tutorial of this one, for sure! What fun your family will have opening these and enjoying the goodies.  Grin

Your village is beautiful  Smiley

What a novel idea, making a village! I love all the little details you added to the houses. Advent calendars with treats are always fun.

Your village looks wonderful!  I love all the detail you put into the houses, and the different colors of the trees.
