Advent calendar filler ideas for kids

If you’re looking for stocking stuffers or ideas on what to fill your child’s advent calendar with, you’ve come to the right place! Whether you’re looking for advent calendar ideas for your baby, toddler, or child, I’ve grouped ideas below by age group for you!

As you may have seen from a previous post, we LOVE advent calendars in our house. When it was just my husband and I, I would create an advent calendar for him full of fun stuff every year. The list kept growing! Now that we have an active toddler on our hands, I thought I would start this list as a way for me to track some ideas I plan on putting in her stocking or advent calendar while also sharing them with you lovely strangers on the internet.

I’ve separated the ideas by age group with the top list including babies aged 0 to 18 months since there aren’t many toys in this age group that are only suitable for babies.
