Advent Calendar Ideas for Kids
A roundup of fun Christmas Advent Calendars for Kids. Tons of options to countdown to Christmas with easy and fun advent calendars for kids!
There’s a good chance the anticipation of Christmas is maybe more fun than the actual day! There’s nothing like counting down to Christmas, and Christmas advent calendars create such a fun and easy way to make the entire month of December feel fun.
We’re spending this year making Christmas at home feel fun and exciting! Although we’ve always purchased a chocolate advent calendar, we decided it was a great time to add a new tradition by adding other advent calendar ideas for kids to our plans! I purchased a few and my boys are already so excited to start the countdown on December 1st!
If you want to add a little Christmas magic for kids, one of these advent calendar ideas is a great way to do it!
Advent Calendar Ideas for Kids
LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar
My son has just about lost his little mind over the excitement to open and assemble a new Star Wars LEGO piece every day until Christmas! If you have a Star Wars lover, a LEGO lover, or a STEM fan of any kind, this is such a fun advent idea for kids!
The Wonder of the Greatest Gift: An Interactive Family Celebration of Advent Calendar
A religious interactive advent that counts down to Christmas with a reminder of the reason for the season! Such great reviews, and a truly beautiful design that is sure to create family memories!
LEGO City Advent Calendar
They change these LEGO City Advent Calendars up every year, and I love that this one is extra holiday themed this year! It's also a fun thing to add to a LEGO collection.
LEGO Harry Potter Advent Calendar
LEGOs meets Harry Potter, and I think most kids (and many adults) would go bonkers over one of these sets!
FUNKO POP Harry Potter Advent Calendar
For any Harry Potter fan, these little FUNKO POP characters are so perfect and so cute!
FUNKO POP Nightmare Before Christmas Advent Calendar
For those hard core Disney fans who can't get enough of the Nightmare Before Christmas at Disney Parks during the holidays, this one is for you! My kids love Halloween, Christmas, and Disneyland (with maybe some parent love mixed in there) in just that order. This is such a fun and cute way to honor the cult classic movie and Disney fans!
Advent Calendars. The Chocolate Kind.
These .99 cent chocolate calendars from Trader Joe's always make their way into our home! The chocolate is surprisingly good for the inexpensive price.
Pro tip: Get backups if you have toddlers who may decide to try to make Christmas come early by eating 20 at once.
Also if you don't have a TJ check your local grocery stores for similar options.
Felt Christmas Tree Fabric Advent Calendar
How cute is this felt calendar that lets kids add another ornament each day of December? The when the tree is decorated, Christmas is here!
Disney Junior Advent Calendar
Here's another great option for the little people, and for the Disney fans! Their favorite Disney Junior characters come together for a fun Disney-themed Christmas advent.
Christmas Book Countdown
I babysat for a family who introduced me to this tradition: wrap a Christmas book for every night of December and let kids open one to read before bed. I loved how excited these kids were, and we've kept the book advent tradition in my own family!
If you need some great books to buy or check out from the library, here are the best Christmas Picture Books for Kids.
Disney's Countdown to Christmas: A story a day
We love reading our way to Christmas, and this fun book gives you 25 short Disney themed holiday tales to read together. It's a little Disney magic in an affordable book form with one story a day until Christmas.
Disney Minnie Mouse Advent Calendar with 24 Day Holiday Theme Surprise Fashions & Accessories!
I may have lost my little girl mind over this cute Minnie Mouse advent! The outfits are so fun, Minnie is darling, and it won't take up much space after the holiday season to store and continue to love and play with.
