Is it Christmas yet? With children you hear this all the time. To make counting down to Christmas fun have an Advent calendar. I have six Advent calendars around the house.
I may have gone overboard but hear me out.
Here are my reasons for multiple Advent calendars:
- I have three sons.
They each get to do two advent calendars a day.
Three calendars have a piece of candy or small present in each day’s pocket.
The other three were activity calendars. They required moving a marker to the next day or placing a small ornament on the calendar tree.
My boys rotate which two they do each day. If you only have one Advent calendar and more than one child, they only get to enjoy the calendar every other day (bummer!). I recommend an even number of calendars for each child.
The daily routine of looking to see what treat, small present, little note, or new activity is always fun and something kids look forward to.
Advent calendars can be purchased at local stores or you can make one. Do you have a favorite way to count down to Christmas? How many Advent calendars do you have?
