15+ OF THE BEST ADVENT CALENDAR IDEAS

GIFT ADVENT CALENDAR

This gift advent calendar is so adorable! You can fill them with candies, decorations, toys, or whatever else you can think of!

DRAWER / BOX ADVENT CALENDAR

This store bought calendar is adorable! I love the retro look of the pictures on the drawers and of course, it’s always nice to choose the treats for the calendar.

EGG CARTON ADVENT CALENDAR

This calendar is super easy to make and you can fill it with your desired choice of treats.

ADVENT CALENDAR GARLAND

How can you resist this adorable mitten advent calendar garland?!

PRINTABLE ADVENT CHAIN

This printable advent chain is adorable, plus every day has an activity idea!

HANDMADE LEGO ADVENT CALENDAR

This DIY Lego advent calendar is not only brilliant, but frugal if you already have Lego bricks available at home!

FABRIC CHRISTMAS CHAIN COUNTDOWN

I made this fabric countdown to Christmas chain several years ago. My children still adore adding links onto the chain.

This fabric chain is one of the best Christmas advent calendar ideas!

 

CRAYOLA CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN

I love advent calendars that have a usable, creative element to them. This crayola advent calendar has Christmas themed crafts for days! Great for the older child!

PLASTIC CUP ADVENT CALENDAR

This advent calendar idea is so clever! A name of a person is put in the cup (and the child has to write a Christmas card for that individual) and candies are placed in each cup as well.

MEANINGFUL CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN

Do you want your children to be more aware of others during the Christmas season? Create this meaningful Christmas countdown and “fill” it with volunteer, charitable, and relationship-building activities!

A meaningful Christmas advent calendar.

 

TOILET PAPER TUBE ADVENT CALENDAR

I love this idea! Not only do you reuse toilet paper tubes, but it looks adorable!

PRINTABLE JESSE TREE

This printable Jesse Tree Ornament set is a wonderful way to focus on Christ through the Christmas season. Print, cut out, and hang the ornaments for the 25 days leading up to Christmas. The printable set also comes with a list of related scriptures.

ACTS OF KINDNESS ADVENT CALENDAR

Start with an empty basket and place one item per day into the basket. On Christmas Eve, take the basket to the food bank!

PUNCHABLE CHRISTMAS CALENDAR

This punchable Christmas calendar reminds me of a Price is Right game! It also comes with an item list and related scriptures. I love this idea!

BURLAP ADVENT CALENDAR BUNTING

I love the rustic feel of this calendar AND that it’s multi-purpose (it’s an adorable decor idea).

LEGO ADVENT CALENDAR

My kids have always loved the Lego advent calendar. We’ve purchased a couple over the past 10 years, but we put all the pieces back in the calendar at the end of the season so we can use it again in subsequent years.

We love our Lego friends advent calendar!

Simply looking at all these advent calendar ideas gets me excited for Christmas! Do you have an advent calendar? If so, what kind of calendar do you use?
