There are so many more options now a days when it comes to advent calendars. December 1 is less than a week away, but there is still time to get an amazing advent calendar unique to your child’s interests. My oldest is a classic chocolate eater, but the other two are a different story. My middle daughter doesn’t really care for chocolate, and my youngest doesn’t need any more sugar, ever. She is two and is off the wall as it is, plus every snack we give her ends up all over her hands, the couches, the walls, chewed up and spit on to the floor, etc. So we love the variety of options available. Here is a list of some of our favorites that we have come across, and links to order them ASAP!
