The countdown to Christmas is away to begin and most people will be displaying their advent calendars and looking forward to whatever will be behind the door that day, whether its chocolate, toys, beauty products or even cheese! We have one of those wooden advent calendars that you can fill up the drawers with sweets or small toys but seeing as I’m trying to cut back on all things sweet I thought activities would be much better
for my teeth and waistline. Also Noah is too young for chocolate at the moment. I thought we could fill the days with activities we can do over the next 24 days until it’s finally Christmas Day. This would also be a good thing to do if you don’t want your children consuming lots of chocolate in the run up to Christmas and also to build up the excitement for them.
You don’t have to do activities every day, maybe at the weekend only or on days that you aren’t busy. There are some easy activities on here where you don’t even need to leave the house if the weather is bad or if you have a case of the CBAs (can’t be arsed). This list includes activities that you can do for families, children, couples or even just with friends.
I hope that you found this Advent Calendar Activity Ideas helpful. Is there anything that you like to do that is not on the list? Leave a comment below as I’d love to hear them.
And in case our cats felt left out, they get an Advent Calendar too but with treats, there is no way I’m going to do a list of activities for them!
What kind of Advent Calendar do you have this year? Do you already do something like this? If you have any ideas, I would love to hear them.
