Last year was our first Christmas as parents. Frog was less than 3 months old at the beginning of advent, so rather than a chocolate advent calender, we bought a wooden advent calender instead.
Behind each door, instead of a chocolate, we place a Christmas decoration for our tree. Each morning in the countdown of advent, frog and his daddy open the door to reveal that days decoration, and hang it on the tree.
How do you count down advent with your children?
