Get ready for Christmas with PLAYMOBIL

Can you believe it’s almost time to put up the Christmas tree and start the countdown to Christmas? Every year the kids start counting on December 1st using a radio ornament. But this year, we’re going to add a new PLAYMOBIL Advent calendar to help get us ready for the holidays!

PLAYMOBIL Advent Calendar

We are excited about the holiday season and looking forward to pulling the tree out of storage, getting the lights strung on the porch and hanging the wreath on the front door. But there is one fun new piece we are adding to our Christmas traditions.

Starting on December 1st, the kids will be able to open a little door each day and work toward building Santa’s Workshop.. I snuck a peak at day 1 so I could show you what is behind the first flap!

The Advent Calendar comes with a cardboard form so you will have a place to display all the pieces as Santa’s Workshop comes to life!

How do you count down the days till Christmas? I’d love to hear your favorite traditions!
