To make Christmas magical this year (with everything going on) we decided to get each of the kids a Christmas advent calendar.  Cookie (our Elf on the Shelf) will bring  the Christmas Advent Calendars the first day he comes back as a gift. I can’t wait to see the excitement at seeing Cookie and getting the gift. Usually I love to DIY Advent Calendars, but this year it’s all going to be different. Getting a toy surprise every morning, will make this Christmas season truly magical, special and unique. I’m sharing the best advent calendars for kids with you today. 

I think one of the best known kids advent calendars are the LEGO Christmas Countdown ones, but did you know that there are all kinds of advent calendars for kids? There are Playmobile ones, Minecraft, Mario, Horse calendars and so. much more. No matter your child’s interest, there is a toy advent calendar out there for them.
