I can hardly wait for Christmas! I just saw a funny guideline suggesting when you should put your tree up based on your star sign and my sign properly lined up with “leave it up all year!” One of my favorite holiday traditions is kicking off the month of December with a countdown using our advent calendars. The children are all smiles before they walk out the door for school when they open their little gift for the day.
In this post, I share my absolute must have favorite wooden advent calendars from ShopKSW. We have use ours for years and I hope you will add some to your collection of holiday decorations. Scroll down further for a list of suggestions to fill the boxes and a few look books of some of my favorite pre-filled advent calendars for every member of the family.
Here are few of my favorite fillers:
-chapstick or lip balm
-little make up or perfume samples
-candies and chocolates
-sample size nutella or jams
-little brain teaser games
-tiny little classic toys
-charms for a bracelet or necklace
-miniature toy cars
-glitter, stickers and craft supplies
-scented hand sanitizer
-sometimes, if I just can’t find anything small enough, I’ll put a note inside with a clue that sends them on a hunt to find a slightly larger treat!
