Wow, you guys Amazon is having some amazing sales today! I just saw that the LEGO City Advent Calendars are on sale, and so are the LEGO Friends Advent Calendars! It’s cheaper than they have been at Costco the last few times I have been there. For Christmas, we definitely have a regular Advent Calender and read Bible verses and learn about Christ’s birth each day leading up to Christmas, but we have also been using these Lego calendars as a special countdown to Christmas like we used to with the red and green homemade Christmas paper chains we used to make. Did you ever make those paper chains when you were a kid or make some with your kids? I much prefer the LEGO method to making paper chains.
If your kids are not into LEGO, but they like Advent Calenders, there is also this Hot Wheels Advent Calendar with 24 windows that include a Hot Wheel themed surprise! I love that they make these boxes as a themed playscape too.
There is also this Christmas themed Melissa and Doug Wooden Countdown to Christmas Advent Calendar with magnetic ornaments on sale for only $15.99 that can be used year after year. I love all of the options we have to create new Christmas traditions with our families.
