In a world where the hustle and bustle of the holiday season can sometimes overshadow the simple joys, there’s something extraordinary about the act of unwrapping a new story or putting together a daily puzzle with the family.

Our Fave Puzzles This Year
We love doing puzzles together this time of year. There is magic in the shared curiosity, laughter, and collaboration. I find that it’s a great time of togetherness, where little hands and young minds work to unlock the secrets of each piece. Additionally, the sense of accomplishment that follows the completion of a puzzle is not just a triumph over interlocking shapes; it’s a celebration of teamwork, patience, and the sheer joy of unraveling a mystery together.
Creating this advent calendar is about cultivating moments of connection, laughter, and shared wonder with your kids. Additionally, it has the ability to build anticipation and create an atmosphere of holiday excitement. I hope your holiday season is filled with the warmth of shared stories, the thrill of unfolding new chapters, and the joy of solving puzzles with your loved ones!
