Often associated with a religious background, the Advent Calendar is believed to have been created in the early 19th century counting down the 24 days of December ending on Christmas Eve. But Advent isn’t just a holiday for the religious. You can use the idea of a countdown for any much-anticipated event, such as a family vacation, birthday party or visit from out-of-town family. Advent calendars are a great way to engage your kids in the preparation and planning for that special event, helping them channel their anticipation and excitement.
Here are some of our favorite countdown calendars featuring magnets, building blocks, stickers and more – perfect for kiddies to have fun with all December-long!
