Ever since my son was 2 years old we have created fun activities to do each day leading up to Christmas day. It is so much fun. In the past I had written them just for us on index cards, but last year I was so excited by the cards Mama Papa Bubba created that we used those. Inspired by the cards we used last year and our Summer Activity Cards, I created a brand new set of Christmas Advent Calendar Printable Activity Cards. Print them out and enjoy!
A few years ago I created our special advent calendar. It was easy to make and my kids love running down the stairs each morning and opening a box to see what fun activity we have planned. You can make one by simply using a glue gun to attach small boxes like these to a board (cardboard is fine). Next I used number stickers to create the numbers 1-24 on the individual boxes. You could also just use a permanent marker to write the numbers on the boxes. That’s it! Your advent calendar is ready to use. The printable cards fit nicely in the boxes and keep our days organized.
Now comes the fun part! Print out our Christmas Advent Calendar Printable Activity Cards and decide which ones to use. I’ve purposefully made 30 and left the dates blank so that you can customize them.
