    Do you have an Advent Calendar?
    Is it filled or do you fill it yourself?
    When do your kids open it?

    My mom bought us one a couple years ago and it looks like a gingerbread house. We fill it with candy or coins. I have not had toys in it because the doors are so small.
    The kids open it every morning right after they find their elf… they love it

    I have seen these that are filled with nailpolishes and / or make-up . I can totally do with that :)

    We have one. It’s a chocolate one from Barnes and Noble. We TOTALLY forgot about it this year so it’s pretty much if we want chocolate we pick a day. lol

    The boys have chocolate ones this year. I want to buy some refillable ones. I like ones that have little Scriptures in them that tell the Christmas story too.

    No but I like the thought of it for next year.

    I was just at CVS and they had all the chocolate ones still full price. Not that I wanted more – it just seems like they should be knocking those prices down ;)

    We actually ended up with three advent calendars the past 2 years.

    1) Three Christmases ago, I made an ornament advent calendar. It’s essentially a board with number tags and pins to hang the ornaments. We start with the board entirely filled. Everyday, Ethan removes the appropriately numbered ornament from the board and puts it on our Christmas tree. When the board is empty, Christmas is here! It’s a great visual way for Ethan to know how many days are left until Dec 25.

    2) My kid is obsessed with an old lego advent calendar of mine and will play with it year round. This year, he had his own lego advent calendar. He had so much fun building the little lego item each day and always made sure to open it everyday first thing in the morning. Last year, he had a playmobil calendar instead.

    3) My mom sends us an online advent calendar every year. It has little scenes to watch and games and puzzles to play every day.

    I really don’t do the chocolate filled ones! I like the ones that have toys in them, like for my daughter My Little Pony was last year! After Christmas last year I bought a refillable Christmas tree shaped one so I filled it with nail art, rings, and coins! My daughter loves to open the doors after finding her elf on the shelf too!
