Advent calendars for kids and babies

Making memories for baby’s first Christmas and starting new traditions as a family is so fun for parents and extended family. One tradition is you can start is how you will celebrate advent, I always loved my chocolate calendar but if you are up for doing a little something different there are some great ideas!

I wish I could claim to be crafty, but alas, I am more of the ‘buy something crafty looking’ sort. I actually love spending time doing crafts as tinkering away feels so therapeutic but I never put the time aside to do it. So there are two streams of advent calendars to go for, make your own of buy one and fill it, each involve some work from the creator, so no getting away from that!

If you are stuck for ideas, they abound on blogs or Pinterest. Two that I liked best were the handprint glass ornament, which looks easy enough for Pinterest beginners like me and can be bought in a kit from Amazon, Indigo, etc.  If you are feeling a little more crafty and have a real Christmas tree you can make a cool baby’s first Christmas ornament from the trunk of your tree.
