One of my favorite holiday activities are advent calendars. I love counting down to Christmas day! I can remember being a kid and how exciting it was to see our advent calendar get full.
I’ve been looking around for some fun advent calendars for kids to really get Brady and Paityn excited to use it. Plus, since they’re so young this helps them visually to understand just how far away we are from Christmas. They didn’t have anything like this when I was a kid and I think it’s so cool there is a Lego advent calendar!
