Choosing the perfect Advent calendar can sometimes be a difficult task. Each year, the choices seem to grow with more and more companies making their very own special calendar!
Personally, I love handmade calendars because they are more affordable and they also offer a more original touch. However, this year has been busy and I haven’t had a lot of time to consecrate. Therefore, here is a selection of 10 favorite calendars (in no particular order) that are ideal for kids. I love this tradition full of surprises that keeps kids (and adults) patient until Christmas Day!
