Advent Calendar DIY and Free Printables Roundup

I was chatting with friends about Christmas gifts for kids when they said they got their nephews an early gift: a Playmobil advent calendar, where you get a new little toy each day. It reminded me of how much I loved those old fashioned cardboard advent calendars with a Santa shaped chocolate behind each door. I would think about it all day, looking forward to the moment where finally, my sister and I would savor our daily little treat. As I was thinking about these days with a pinch of nostalgia, it occurred to me that I haven't had an advent calendar in years... 15 years maybe? So this year, we're definitely having one.

I've been scouring the web for DIY advent calendars (some include free printables) and found such beautiful and creative ones that I thought they were worth sharing. Hope you enjoy them!
