Disclosure: I received a free product for the purposes of this post. However, all opinions are honest and reflect my own experiences with the product.
It was just a few years ago that I did not even know what an advent calendar was. Now, I can’t believe how much fun and awesome they are for kids (and adults) and how much we were missing out on. Vermont Christmas Company has an amazing array of advent calendars to choose from: fabric advent calendars, wooden advent calendars, advent wreaths, chocolate advent calendars and so much more. I got the Christmas Tree Fabric Advent Calendar and I love it! My daughter loves it even more!
It is super cute and and beautifully crafted! It comes with 20 different velcro stuffed figures that are in the pockets of each day of the calendar. And after that day is over, you then add the item to the tree! Just like decorations on the tree. But to add even more fun to it, I am adding pieces of paper to each day that will have something fun written on them to do each day. You can add anything you like to the pockets. I will give you some examples of the things I have written for each day.
- Decorate the Christmas tree.
- Fill out Christmas cards.
- Decorate the house.
- Go Christmas caroling.
- Watch a Christmas movie.
- Listen to Christmas songs.
- Open 1 gift.
- Make Christmas cookies.
- Wrap family member’s presents. (Kids love helping you wrap!)
- Read a Christmas book together.
- Make a Christmas craft.
- Go watch a local Christmas parade.
- Take a drive to see your neighborhood’s Christmas lights.
So, you can see how much fun this Advent Calendar can be. If you do not want to add these fun pieces of paper to your pockets on the calendar, you do not have to add anything. It is fun all by itself. Or you can add a piece of candy to each pocket or some other fun treat. You could even add little ornaments to put one on the tree each day. The possibilities are endless.
This gorgeous Christmas Tree Fabric Advent Calendar from Vermont Christmas Company is 17″ by 23″. It is pretty big, but not too big. Just the perfect size, I think! The fun velcro stuffed pieces are fun things like Santa Claus, snowmen, angels, decorations and other fun stuff. And I think it is tons of fun for the holiday season for the whole family!
