    INSTRUCTIONS: Remove the advent calendar on pages 2–3 from the magazine. Mount those pages on lightweight cardboard so they meet in the middle to form the picture. Cut out the small pictures on this page along the solid black lines, then fold the tabs back along the dotted lines. Next, cut slits along the dotted lines above the scrambled dates on the calendar.
