If you don't feel like sitting around watching the telly this Christmas, why not get creative? Since there's no better way of being creative than doing some maths, this year's advent calendar brings you puzzles and articles that should stimulate your imagination.

They have all been inspired by Wild Maths, a collection of activities and resources designed to encourage mathematical creativity. The Wild Maths resources have been developed by the team behind our sister site NRICH with some help from ourselves.

Have fun!
