Printable Christmas Advent Calendar Activities: with over 60 different activities to choose from pick 24 and make some special memories with your family this Christmas.
We love celebrating Christmas here. It’s our very, very favourite holiday. When my kids were little I always made them a Christmas Activity Calendar.
Christmas Printable Package
I’ve included our Printable Christmas Advent Activities as part of our Christmas Printable Package. We came up with over 60 different activities so you should have no problem finding 24 that you love. And we created 3 different designs of each set. You can buy the Advent Activities here. Or you can purchase them as part of our Christmas Printable Package.
We asked our readers what is their biggest holiday struggle and the answer we heard over and over was time. So we thought that if we bundled up everything you need to celebrate Christmas all in one place we could save you tons of time. We hope that this year you spend a little less time preparing and more time actually celebrating! The advent activities are just one of 10 different sets included in the package. There are also 5 different party sets, gift tags, gift card holders, Christmas art, and lunch box notes. So you’ll be all set to have the best Christmas ever.
Christmas Printable Advent Calendar Activities
When my kids were little they absolutely loved their Advent Activity Calendar. Each day they would open their calendar to find a special Christmas activity that we would do together that day.
I love that my focusing on some quality time together, we make sure that our kids remember a lot more than just gifts. These activities are the stuff that memories are made of. It’s so easy to get super busy this time of year, and having one of these activities to focus on each day helped me be a little more present.
There is a big variety of activities. Some are extra special and might require a little pre-planning -like making a gingerbread house, or going to cut down a Christmas tree.
But others are really simple like cutting our a paper snowflake, making hot chocolate, or calling the grandparents and singing a Christmas song to them.
I asked my kids what some of their favourites were from years past and they said having a Christmas picnic under the Christmas tree, wearing Christmas socks, painting their fingernails red and green, and a special bubble bath with Christmas music. Ha, ha. These really are some special Christmas memories for all of us.
Fill A Reusable Calendar or Make One
To create your calendar you can use a refillable advent calendar like this one, or one with little doors. You can include a little candy treat too, if you choose to. Another great idea is to use small envelopes or tiny paper bags.
The possibilities are endless. This is one I made a few years ago. Each little house is open on the bottom and you add an activity card inside. Find the pattern and tutorial for the Little House Advent Calendar here.
My little bit of advice, from my own regret in years past is to make a master calendar for yourself so that you don’t forget what you had planed and can make sure you have the materials on hand. For example, remember to buy hot chocolate for that day, and some hotdogs for picnic day… or what ever you need for the activities you choose.
I would also suggest not making it too hard on yourself. Make use of the easier activities on really busy school nights. And make sure to include the activities you would be doing anyway, like going to a school concert, or going to cut down the Chrsitmas tree.
With Christmas Advent Activities, life really is a party!
