Advent Calendars for Kids

It’s almost time for the big Christmas countdown to begin! That means it’s time to get your family’s advent calendar together.  An advent calendar is a must have thing to have to celebrate the Christmas season all month long. Make your own advent calendar for the family, especially for the little ones. Kids will have so much fun picking out one treat a day until Christmas comes!  Remember, wonderful things come in small packages.

Fill these envelopes with hints to let your kids know where they can find their treat!

I love the idea of hanging small presents from clothes pins!

Make a cute Christmas garland with Chinese take out boxes.

How fun is this?  Add a new ornament to your Christmas tree as each day passes by!

Hang mini stockings (your children’s socks) and hide little treats inside!

What little child wouldn’t love to punch through a tissue paper hole to grab their surprise?!

Remember to start early with your advent calendar, you don’t want to miss the first day of December! Just think about the exciting look on your child’s face every morning of December…PRICELESS!

Let the Christmas countdown begin!
