There are so many cute advent calendars out there. My favorite growing up was the countdown chain! I did something similar for my sister in law to countdown to her due date, here. I had an itching to put another one together, so I did this little one for my niece and nephew.
I also included a couple of candy canes and 3D Christmas light glasses that I picked up for them a few weeks ago. Have you seen these before? They’re so much fun!
You can download the chain for yourself here! If you were doing this for your kids, you could write a different activity on the back of each link to do each day as you count down. Love that idea!
