Why are Christmas Advent Calendars Good for Kids?

With so much anticipation (and anxiety) kids experience during the holiday season, using a Christmas advent calendar helps them keep track of the days until Christmas and gives them a tool to manage their emotions during this very exciting time of year.

Make One Advent Calendar for the Family, or One for Each Person

Since this is a FREE download, you can print as many advent calendars as you would like. So each family member can have their own calendar to use, or you can print one for the whole family, and take turns marking off the days. 

What Ornaments Do You Want to Use?

The DIY advent calendar comes with 3 options of Christmas ornaments that you can use. One set is ornaments with cute Christmas pictures like candy canes, gingerbread, Santa, and more.

The other two sets are red or green numbers. These sets are fun to use if you want your child to practice matching numbers as they find the right spot on the Christmas tree. 

You could also use craft items like pom poms or buttons, in place of the printable ornaments that are in the set.
