We need anticipation now more than ever, especially when it comes to getting our kids (and ourselves!) excited for the holidays. Celebrations may be a little smaller and more intimate in 2020, but that doesn’t mean we have to skimp on the joy-inducing touches. Trust me: if anything, holidays at my house will start way earlier than usual this year.
One thing we do is set up an advent calendar so that there’s a daily activity to count down the days to Christmas and Santa. It sets the tone of holiday cheer right away! Whether you’re looking for a crafty advent calendar for the little artists, a delicious candy calendar for the sweet-toothed kiddoes, or a classic wooden version that will live on for years, we’ve done the shopping so you don’t have to!
All you have to do? Watch their eyes light up every morning as they rush to their beautiful new advent calendar.
Here are our top 2020 advent calendar picks for kids:
