Advent Calendars: 6 Creative Ways to Countdown to Christmas With Kids!

Advent calendars are a playful and interactive way to countdown to the holidays. Here are some ideas!

  1. LEGO's advent calendar start each day off with a small LEGO to build and play with. What fun!
  2. If homemade works better for you, try using numbered buckets filled with a surprise for each day. 
  3. Use a pre-made wood calendar with numbered doors that you can tuck in a special surprise for each day. 
  4. Fill 25 little gift boxes with sweet treats or tiny toys. 
  5. Number a collection of canisters to fill with yummies.
  6. Put out 25 tree ornaments to hang one a day and finish your tree just on time!

What a fun tradition to start this year!
