Fun Friday Countdown – 5 Genius Advent Calendar Ideas

It’s already December! Another Friday is upon us, boy this year is really winding down fast. Well, I have some great ideas to help you get really creative this holiday season. 🙂


Cute Paper Bags

Charming Paper Bag Advent Calendar

You get to construct them yourself and add your own personal touches! Choose the chocolates and candies your kids like best, or substitute the treats for cute little notes or small toys.


Ornamental Additions

This advent calendar idea is simple and perfect for last-minute crafters. Stencil 24 numbers onto manila shipping tags & add glittery adornments. Each day, as Christmas draws closer and closer, the kids can take off an ornament and place it on the tree.


Book Tree Advent

Book Tree Advent from Reading Confetti

This is an awesome idea!  Just wrap 24 Children’s books & turn them into little Christmas trees. Your little ones can get a surprise story daily & a good read! You don’t have to wrap them, but I think it adds to the fun.  Can also find more good reads here 


Gift Wrap Magic

Transform discarded wrapping paper tubes into a colorful, tree-shaped Advent calendar the kids will love.



Merry Mittens

Add a sweet and colorful touch to any holiday mantel with a festive mitten advent calendar garland. This is very easy & inexpensive. You can even find small toddler sized mittens at your local dollar store which is a great bargain. 🙂


Great ideas right? I hope you’re able to put some of them to good use 😉  Well, that about wraps it up for this week, enjoy your weekend…& let the countdown begin!  “Toodles!” 😊
