30 Advent Calendars for Kids

The advent calendars we bought for the kids were a huge hit last year. We all had a lot of fun opening the little doors each day to see what surprise was inside.

These advent calendars also double as gifts that your kids will love, and will last them more than just the month of December!

LEGO Advent Calendars

Great for LEGO fans of any age, these calendars include mini figures as well as micro lego sets that you can build. There are three versions for 2017, and you may be able to find older LEGO advent sets for sale on Amazon.

We love Disney, so there’s a good chance we’ll have at least one of these calendars this year. But there are so many options to choose from. The micro plush tsum tsum calendar and the animators’ collection calendar are both exclusive to disney stores, but you might have luck finding them using the shop disney parks app!
