LEGO Friends Advent Calendar (2019)

LEGO Friends, 2019 Advent Calendar

This is the first year our family is keeping Advent calendars, and we’re hooked! I picked up two cheese advent calendars from Aldi for the adults (yum!) and two LEGO Advent calendars for the kiddos.

TIP: Did you miss out on keeping an Advent calendar this year? No problem, purchase the discounted older sets and save them for use next year! Make sure to buy before the older sets become MORE expensive because they’ve become collector’s items!

So, on December 1st, our kids were very excited about their Advent calendars. We stuck them in gift bags and presented them. With screams of glee, our children wanted to rip right into the boxes. Don’t let them!

Step 1) Note the front of the box is a flap. Use a knife and carefully cut the tape so the flap lifts upward. Under the flap are perforated areas labeled with numbers 1 -24. Punch out each one individually to access the 24 wrapped daily gifts stored in a try below the flaps.

Step 2) Choose if you are counting down or matching with the date in December. We were confused about which way to do it. Oh my, we’ll get there!

When we started, we decided it was December 1 so open the #1. Then, logically, the next day was December 2, so I instructed the kids to open #2. On December 3, we realized, hey, wait, this doesn’t seem right. This should be a countdown! So, on December 3, we opened #23. Whoops! Still wrong! Anyway, we’ve done it differently each year, and we landed on counting up because there is less confusion!

And full disclosure, my husband said each day, “Are you sure we’re doing this right?” I thought, “Yep, sure are!” I should have listened to my better half.

Twenty-four small LEGO gifts to count down ’til Christmas! LEGO Friends Advent Calendar.

Follow along with our fun below. Here are snapshots of a few of the builds.

We’re loving this new holiday tradition for our family. Each morning, before school, our kids are hurrying through breakfast and getting ready for the day so that they can open their new mini LEGO builds.
