Looking for a creative advent calendar that will keep kids occupied? Lego fits the bill

Christmas is less than 100 days away, can you believe it? The kids may have already started thinking about what they want to ask Santa for, but have they thought about their advent calendars? If they’d prefer to open a toy each day rather than chocolate, then you can’t get better than Lego.

The Lego advent calendars are among the most-wanted of the festive season, with good reason. There’s a buildable toy to discover each day of December and there are so many different themes, including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lego Friends and Lego City.
