FREE Printable Advent Calendar with loads of fun activities!

Posted by  ·  November 29, 2018  ·  Last Updated: December 1, 2018

At our house, we love to celebrate with an  Advent Calendar.  This countdown calendar for Christmas focuses on bringing the family together and spending time with each other.  I am hoping this printable advent calendar helps you enjoy each other and slow down this holiday season and spend time together.


 Print it out and assemble and be ready for a month of fun and togetherness with your family.

Printable Advent Calendar

This printable Advent Calendar counts down to Christmas with a fun activity each day. What a great way to celebrate Christmas with your family every day for the month of December.

Christmas Advent Calendar

This Printable Advent Calendar is modern and full of color and sure to brighten up any space in your home this holiday. It’s easy to put together and a great way for you and your family to spend some time with each other and assemble the envelopes, and get each of you thinking what you’d like to do for each day of the month. There are plenty of blank cards to add your own ideas.

This is how easy it is to assemble the envelopes together.

  1. Cut out all of your envelopes and fold the tabs, the middle, and top of the envelope.
  2. Put glue on the tabs and fold over the envelope, pressing firmly on the sides so that the tabs and the front of the envelope stick.
  3. Insert your activity card and fold over the top of the envelope.

For the activity cards, there are 25 that are all ready to go and you can simply print, cut them out, and insert them into an envelope or there is a page of blank activity cards for you to fill in.

Advent Calendars are such a fun way to bring your family closer during the holidays. I love to count down the days to Christmas with them, and each day is always a surprise of what we’ll be doing next. It makes me stop in this busy season and take a moment to make memories with my family. I hope that you all have a wonderful holiday season and enjoy this time with your families!

    This is adorable! We are thinking of doing it as a young women activity. What size is the board?

    wondering if I could get an editable file of the Insert Cards so I could type in some stuff to print for each of my kids. Super cute! Thanks!

      Hi Britney, I don't have one right now but that is a great idea. In the mean time did you see I included a blank sheet so you could write your own activities?
