Let’s count down the days until Christmas with TopLay’s Advent Calendar filled with fun activities, crafts and recipes!

Everyday, from now until the 25th, we will have a craft or recipe for you to try. These activities are simple and straightforward – perfect for the entire family! It’s the season of giving and we also have some TopLay recipe books to give away. So, tag us in your creations using #TopLayAdventCalendar on social media and we’ll send a book your way!

Week 1

Kick off your TopLay Advent Calendar by creating a Christmas tree made from an egg carton! This week we’re revisiting some crowd favourites and making one cup pancakes and some tasty vanilla cupcakes.
