10 Advent Calendars You Can Purchase for Your Toddler
Yesterday, I shared 24 advent calendars you can make yourself. But sometimes, you just want to buy something and not have to worry about DIY-ing it.
Here are ten of my favorites:
I love Eric Carle for babies, and this gorgeous pop-up advent calendar of his Dream Snow book is a perfect introduction to his work beyond “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?”
Jacquie Lawson Alpine Village
My in-laws bought us the 2011 version of this digital advent calendar last year and my daughter only stopped watching it on an almost daily basis about a month ago. The little videos were just right for her attention span (about 30-90 seconds each) and featured lots of music and animals. We can’t wait for this year’s!
Print off this free advent calendar and let your toddler glue a cotton ball on to Santa’s beard each day. Cute, easy, and, did I mention free?
Stocking Advent Calendar
This is definitely not your cheapest option, but it’s certain to be a family treasure for years. And you can get it monogrammed, which I always love.
Not a Creature Was Stirring
If your toddler is even half as much into animals as mine is, this advent calendar featuring a whole slew of tiny mice (which you can customize with your own activities) will be an instant holiday favorite.
Magnetic Nativity Advent Calendar
This wooden nativity is sturdy enough for tiny fingers and the magnetic figures can be easily moved around.
I love the beautiful look of this crisp, winter-y calendar.
Colorful Advent Calendar
This traditional hanging advent calendar is so bright and colorful, and tiny children will love moving the felt candy cane to a new pocket each day (and possibly finding a little gift or treat inside each pocket!)
Print out these darling mittens, add a candy or activity to each, hang them on your tree or as a garland, and you’re set to go!
