Ever wondered what you could do with empty Jaffa Cake tubes?…………….

 

Well the residents and staff at Stuart House have come up with such a great idea; a tree shape advent calendar!

Staff and residents attached the Jaffa cake tubes together to create a tree shaped structure, they then painted the outside of the tubes and stuck real leaves, that were collected from their garden, to make it look even more like a tree.

Stickers numbered from 1 to 25 were stuck on the lids of each Jaffa cake tube and treats were divided into poly pockets ready to pop inside, so that each resident can enjoy a little sweet treat each day in December for the run up to Christmas day!

Last but not least a silver star was made to stick on top of their home made advert calendar!
