24 easy and educational ideas to put in your advent calendar with children:

1. Christmas movies and popcorn night.

We recommend some Christmas movies for movie, blanket and popcorn day: The Magical Christmas of the Jangles , Home Alone, Noelle, The Claus Family, Arthur Christmas: Operación Regalo.

2. Gift mom and dad to do a homework. We leave you with some suggestions: stretch out the bed, take out the dishwasher, walk the dog, etc... it will depend on the age.

3. A new ornament for the Christmas tree.

We suggest you take the type of paper that you like the most, and draw a star with a pencil and cut it out. Once cut out, decorate your star however you like. When it is ready, make a hole with the hole punch in the upper part and pass the tape to be able to put it on the Christmas tree.

4. Some seeds to plant and watch grow.

If you have nowhere to plant the seeds, you can take lentil seeds and do it with damp cotton.

5. A fun test like guessing an animal or a movie with mime.

6. Read a Christmas story, a joke or a riddle.

7. Cooking Christmas cookies one afternoon for snacks or as gifts. Here is my infallible butter cookie recipe to decorate.
