Nothing is more fun than the holidays….well, unless you count the ANTICIPATION of the holidays. I mean, how many times did you ask as a child, “HOW MANY DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS?” or how many times do your kiddos ask the same question!?
Advent calendars are a timeless way to enjoy the holidays as a family. We’ve picked out a few of our personal favorites!
- Melissa and Doug – You really can’t go wrong with Melissa and Doug and this magnetic advent really encourages the little ones to get involved.
- Yuletide Spirit – I’m a sucker for pretty things and this “pouch” version is just that. I love it! You can include 25 special little gifts in these decorated pouches and hang them somewhere easily accessible.
- Hot Wheels – Your little transportation lover will love getting new cars! Zoom away each day with this advent!
- Star Wars Lego– You guys. Legos AND Star Wars? Can life get any better!?! This is a limited version and it’s been selling like HOT cakes! We can see why!
- Playdoh– Who doesn’t love Play dough? Your kiddos will be able to have a little fun each day.
- Wooden Creative Hobbies – I love this wooden version because each day is a little drawer. Fill it with a little toy or treat or Bible verse. PLUS, this one comes unfinished so you can have a family activity painting it!
- Little People Advent Calendar – A classic toy for the toddlers in your house – in advent form!
- DIY – Of course, there’s ALWAYS the option of making your own. We provide the tutorial HERE.
- Gingerbread House– What is it about gingerbread houses that make my heart sing? Make one that’s edible, or one you can use year after year.
- Schleich Farm – My kiddos are obsessed with Schleich toys. And you really get a good deal when you get this advent calendar – it’s packed full of fun animals and accessories.
