36 Christmas Advent Activities

We started a really special tradition when my oldest son was only a year old, a full calendar filled with Christmas Advent Activities and events. Since we started, we have moved three times, had a 2nd baby, and survived a lockdown; so we have gotten really creative with what we add to our annual Christmas Advent calendar!

So, I have always had one master list of local + anywhere activities, but because our local list is SO extensive I thought I’d throw this easy-to-scan post together for the moms anywhere in the world! You can do these in any order and change up any of these ideas. And here’s my biggest tip: HAVE FUN! Don’t stress about the calendar you put together. Do what you can, and enjoy those warm snuggles in front of a good book or Christmas movie for the in-between times.
