Are you looking for a kids’ advent calendar so you and your littles can count down the days until Christmas? It is the most wonderful time of the year, and possibly the best part of it is the anticipation for Christmas Day. There’s a reason why kids love advent calendars so much — they’re honestly even more exciting than the Christmas gifts themselves. Plus, advent calendars have gotten so much more advanced and creative over the last few years. Advent calendars aren’t just for chocolate anymore — your kids can count down the days with (more) toys, LEGOs, Harry Potter, and more.
