Many families enjoy the tradition of using an Advent Calendar during the month of December to count down to Christmas morning. The toy company Fisher-Price is so well known for providing children with fun and educational toys and now they have a nice variety of Advent Calendars for a family with young children to use in their tradition of Advent. Designed with the child in mind, these Advent calendars have pieces and themes that will appeal to children and make the counting fun and slightly educational, too.
You can find a calendar that is part of a set that they already play with like the Imaginext line or a soft fabric hanging calendar that can teach the religious Christmas story to a child. There is also a set that does not have the Nativity but a more commercial based theme to count down with. When it comes to a Fisher-Price advent calendar, there is something for every family’s needs.
This advent calendar for kids is great for both the fans of Fisher-Price and the Imaginext line by Fisher-Price. Each day of advent (from December 1 through December 25) your children can open a window to find a new rescue play piece. There are a variety of play pieces included in the calendar that counts the days until Christmas including: 3 mini-figures, a motorcycle, 2 different helmets and some tools. Recommended for children 3 years old and older due to small parts that could be a choking hazard.
Fisher-Price offers an advent calendar that is perfect for the smaller children in your family to be able to participate in the counting down to Christmas morning. A soft fabric is used that allows for their little hands to attach the figures to the calendar as the days pass through December. Your child will also begin to learn the story of the Nativity as they begin to place the pieces on the calendar. Recommended for ages 18 months and older.
Your little ones can use this soft fabric Advent calendar to countdown in December using a Christmas Tree and gifts as the counting scene. Each day a different piece that represents a traditional aspect of Christmas like a candy cane, a wreath and other decorative round balls that will fill the tree. Your child will have so much fun as they begin to fill the tree with decorations until they finally reach the top of the Christmas tree.
Fisher-Price offers a little more than just counting down to Christmas for children with this board book. There is a page that has 25 flaps for a child to open each day of December but there are other activities in the book, also. They begin to become away of numbers and counting in general and reinforce the learning of colors and shapes. This little book is sure to become a favorite every year at Christmas time.
