I have so many fond memories of counting down the days until Christmas as a child. This is a great list of Christmas advent calendars kids will love! Each will build so much anticipation until the big day!
Christmas Advent Calendars Kids Will Love
Help add to your child’s Christmas memories by starting a new tradition with an advent calendar. All you need to do is pick one (or two!) of your favorites and start your tradition on December 1st. Pick a time of day when everyone in the family is home so they can all get in on the excitement.
Instead of counting down the days until Christmas, kids will start counting down the minutes until they can open the next box or door.
