How To Make Pentagon Advent Paper Calendar

Amazing Pentagon Paper Calendar

Today's posts is one of my favorite. I really love to make 3D Origami. In my math class I taught my students how to make 3D calendar my students were very happy with the result. Historically, Advent is the period of four Sundays and weeks before Christmas (or sometimes from the 1st December to Christmas Day!). Advent means 'Coming' in Latin. This is the coming of Jesus into the world. Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas. I want to share how to make Advent calendar more fantastic than before.
