Advent Activity Ideas for Kids

We have a number of posts that share Advent activities & Christmas countdown ideas at Edventures with Kids so we created one page to collectively share them all!



Ideas & Fillers for Your Advent Calendar

The holidays are about spending time with your family & enjoying favorite traditions and activities that make lasting memories which is why we created the Advent Activity Pack — 140+ Christmas traditions, movies, books & activities!

When I ask my kids what they remember about past holidays, they never mention the gifts they’ve received. 

They always tell me it’s things like going to pick out our tree late at night or watching our favorite Christmas movie together — it’s the EXPERIENCES that come to mind.

Having a set of Advent Ideas & Activities helps your family to be intentional during the holidays — it’s a way to say “Hey! Let’s set aside a few minutes each day this month to do something  together!”
