Whilst at the Toy Fair earlier this year I spotted another advent calendar that would be available this Christmas. So not only did I know in January that I wanted to open the Playmobil Christmas Ball Advent Calendar for you all. I also discovered that Aquabeads would have their very own advent calendar! What is also lovely is that we have been sent the Aquabeads Advent Calendar to unbox and review for you all.

About The Aquabeads Advent Calendar

A sprayer and layout trays are also included so you can create and enjoy this advent calendar even if it is your first time using Aquabeads.

My Thoughts On The Aquabeads Advent Calendar
This is the first time I have ever created anything with Aquabeads. I helped my little lady make the first items before she had to leave me. We didn’t place the templates under the layout trays, as instructed, as we found this made the designs hard to see. We could easily create the designs with the templates at the side.
Little E needed help with direction but I think she really enjoyed building Aquabead designs. I actually found this activity really relaxing too.
We made all of our designs in one sitting but it is recommended that you let the Aquabeads set for at least 60 minutes. This should be easy to do as you open one door of the advent calendar each day. I think if you have someone creative in your family this would be the perfect advent calendar for them.
