Easy Advent Calendars to Make at Home to Help You Count Down to Christmas

December is only weeks away now, where on earth has the year gone? While we still have time to put off thinking about Christmas, time is running out if you want to make a DIY Advent Calendar.

I’m not a big fan of those store bought calendars with chocolates in especially as my kiddos are still so little. What I really want is a homemade calendar project that is simple enough to create, but that could be a family heirloom, or at least last throughout their childhood!

With that in mind I’ve rounded up 12 easy advent calendars to make at home, and as usual I’m sharing them with you in case you need some inspiration too.
