So are you in the position where you know that you want to have an advent calendar for the holiday season, but you need some advent calendar ideas?
Well, I have got you covered! I have several (30 of them to be exact!) advent activities that are super fun and a great way to start some of your own holiday traditions.
I know coming up with what to put in your advent calendar can seem daunting. Especially, when you are staring at a blank piece of paper when planning it out. Or am I the only one still using paper and pen to plan things?
Many of these advent calendar ideas don’t require much prep or cost on your part.
As a heads up – for the movies if you don’t currently own them, make sure to check Netflix and Amazon Prime to see if you can stream from there. Another thought is to check your library and try and check it out there.
