“Advent calendars that teens will love” has been so much fun to write!
I was wanting to write a new holiday post, and I realized how many fun advent calendars there are available! I decided that this would be a fun post, and my boys and a couple of their girlfriends helped me to find advent calendars that teens will love.
I am always updating this post beginning in late July. Order soon because there are only a few of some of these left, and I had to delete a lot off of the list! I am looking for new ones to add, but it takes time!)
Is there an advent calendar for teenage boys that they would like?
Yes! My boys still love the velcro advent calendar that we have and when they are all around they still do rock, paper, scissors to put on the next figure.
Officially, Advent is the period of four Sundays and weeks before Christmas (or sometimes from the 1st December to Christmas Day!). Advent means “coming” in Latin, This is the coming of Jesus into the world. Christians use the four Sundays and weeks of Advent to prepare and remember the real meaning of Christmas. *This post may contain affiliate links. My full disclosure policy is here.
I like to think of it as anticipation for a special event! There are now advent calendars for having a baby, for Hannukah, and even for your dog! And, I could not help but add this Covid Advent calendar of fun activities -this is not your traditional Advent calendar- but a great idea!
Be sure to check out my other gift guides below!
AND, my friend Monica over at How2WinScholarships.com has put together an advent scholarship activity! This is a fun way to get your teens motivated to apply for some of those pesky scholarships that are so helpful when paying for college! ( She usually updates this around October or November.)
There are so many different kinds of advent calendars that teens will love, take a peek at the 25+ calendars below! Each calendar has its own theme for so many different interests… and, don’t forget to order soon since most of them are 24 day calendars starting December 1.
Pin for later!
This is the advent calendar that my kids grew up with, so I had to include it on this list. Even though it’s for younger kids, my boys still put it up (as teens and older!), and add a character each day, and I love it!
