Entertaining Them


From the Momfilter Archives 

A couple of days ago we posted about our favorite DIY advent calendars, but we are very aware that many of us (ourselves included) will probably not make one on our own (at least not this year)! So, in case you’re into advent calendars, and want some ideas, here’s what we found online this year. (We just ordered the Playmobil one!) Sorry that I’m not including pictures here and that you’ll have to click through…

This is the one we’ve had for a while….we bought it at the Met, and it’s a paper replica of their Neapolitan Christmas tree they put up every year.

Christmas Post Office Advent Calendar from Playmobil (you’ll have to wait til next year to see if it was a success!)

Wooden advent calendar with tree and ornaments

St. Petersburg Church Advent Calendar…I’ve never seen this in person, but wow, it sure looks cool.

For the Lego lover, there’s the Lego City Advent Calendar.

And one of our favorites if just for the drawings, is from Eric Carle.

    Lego also came out with a Star Wars advent calendar this year that looks amazing! We bought it this weekend and I think I am more excited than my boys for December first!
