One of the easier and funniest ways to live the wait until the arrival of Santa Claus or Christmas day is to use a countdown (or Advent) calendar.
You can prepare it by yourself with the help of your children, or use one store-bought calendar.
The moment of opening the bag or the envelop and discover a surprise, or just move the signpost of one day to the following could be a very funny and beautiful moment for the family.
And, if you don’t celebrate Christmas, you can use this idea to prepare a countdown calendar for your own celebrations or holidays. Surprises are always funny!
