Preparation: Pacman Advent Calendar

I have prepared a little video for you. I am sooooo excited about this! (Note there is music – so if you are watching this on your work computer and you’re not meant to be – put on those headphones. Don’t mute it though – the song is “All I want for Christmas” by The Trekky Yuletide Orchestra – love it)

Ok – so this is fun huh! How does it tie into preparation…? Well since the first of December is like only 13 days away, it’s time to prepare ladies and gents! So you wanna make it? Here is how:

You will need:

– A corkboard

– Clay – air dry or oven bake – it doesn’t matter

– Drawing/push pins

– Black, white, green and red paint

– Strong double-sided tape

–  24 Small chocolates wrapped in foil. I used little red Lindt balls.

1. Make your Pacman and ghosts as detailed below. Note you don’t have to use Sculpey, you could use air dry clay or simply cut the shapes out of cardboard. If you are going to make the ghosts out of clay, then to make the wavy bottom of the ghosts, just pinch the clay to form three soft points.

2. Paint you board

3. Cherries

4. Pacman and Ghosts

5. Board
