Advent calendars were a tradition in my home growing up. It was something I looked forward to every year, even when I became a teen. Opening those cute little doors in the cardboard holiday scene and getting a cheap piece of chocolate was a highlight of my mornings each day before school for all of December.
However, I know, times were simpler back then and kids today aren’t always as fond of traditions that they see as a little cheesy. Plus, a cheap piece of chocolate doesn’t have the same allure that it once did.
But I still believe that Advent calendars are a tradition worth keeping. They are simple and fun and something I think even big kids, AKA teenagers, will look back on fondly. The issue is just finding the right kind of Advent calendar that fits your tween or teen’ss particular interests.
Below you’ll find a wide variety of Advent Calendars for tweens and teens with all sorts of interests. OR at the very least, you’ll find one that might make them laugh a little and help get them into the holiday spirt.
