Advent calendars are always a fun way to count down the 24 days until Christmas. If you like to buy a new advent calendar every year for your kids (as opposed to a DIY version), all of the options can be a bit overwhelming. Of course, the calendar you buy depends on what your kids are currently into.
We put together a list of Amazon's best advent calendars for kids to narrow down your options and make the beginning of your holiday shopping a little easier. (Unless this is the end of your shopping, in which case, good for you.)
