This mum made a genius bubble wrap DIY advent calendar for her son

This is brilliant.

There are plenty of advent calendars you can get these days.

Makeup advent calendars. Cheese advent calenders. Advent advent calenders with mini advent calenders inside every one of the doors.

Well, we're not sure about that last one but you get the idea.

One mum, however, has actually found a pretty simple way to make her own advent calendar for her son using just bubble wrap and a permanent marker.

Yep, we told you it was simple.

According to single mum Mel, her son loves bubble wrap so rather than give him the standard chocolate advent calendar that just about everyone is going to be opening up this December, she decided to go ahead and make her own.

And we have to say, it does look fun.

We just don't know if we'd be able to hold off on popping just one bubble per day.
