Free Printable Christmas Advent Calendar

Free Printable #Christmas Advent Calendars by Amy Locurto

It’s Christmas Advent Calendar time! Because I’m a huge procrastinator, all of the Lego Advent calendars were sold out.  I made a trip to the mall and then called 7 stores… yes… all sold out! Who knew I should have bought them back in April? With the start of December upon us, I was forced to make my own.

With some pieces of scrapbook paper, I was very happy with my non-Lego version, plus I saved $50! These calendars are SUPER easy to make (oh and I mentioned cheap right?) and it’s not too late to make one yourself! They were so easy that I even made one for each kid. Take that procrastination!

Actually, they are even more easy for you, because I designed them for you! 

All you need to do is think of what little treats your kids will get each day. The free printable design is customizable, so you can either keep what I have typed, or re-type your own treats. As you can see below, my daughter is really into money, candy and crafts:-) So unless your kids are obsessed with quarters, you’ll probably want type your own. ha!

I printed the little treats on the back of scrapbook paper and the circles on sticker paper.

    I can;t get the download to work either. it says it cannot be opened. even after I saved it to my desktop. Thanks!

  2. I don’t understand how to put it together exactly? Can you explain it in more detail? I don’t understand how you stick the papers on the calendar? It looks like they are stuck on with the numbers but not sure. I was wondering if you could help me a bit more as I would like to do this did my kids this year. Can you use Christmas scrapbook paper instead of printing the prints? Thanks for your help and super cute things.

  3. I would like to make these Advent Calendars for my "grown" "kids", but it will not print. I reinstalled a new version of Adobe….HELP!
    thanks!! ann

    • So sorry you are having problems Ann. So you are able to download the file and open the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader, but it won’t print? I just tested it on my computer and it worked for me. Maybe try restarting your computer since you just installed a new version of Acrobat. I’m not sure why it won’t print for you, but prints for others. – Amy

    • I did download a new version of Adobe, but the calendar won’t download for me. Restarted the computer…no luck.

      • Ah, so it’s not downloading to your desktop? I thought you downloaded the PDF file, opened it and then it would not print. The file is several pages, so it might take a while to download depending on how fast your internet is. You can right click the link to download to a specific folder on your computer. It should say “save link as…” (Hold down your control key if using a Mac.)

        If this still does not work for you, I’m very sorry. Digital files are tricky because each computer and software people use are different. I wish I could be of more help:-)

      • Got it to download!! I right clicked and hit “saved target as” and saved it to my desktop, then opened it up. Very cute!!

    Hi Amy! Hubby and I start this one today! We have most of our supplies, he’s going to get the double-sided tape and then we will start making it together. Thank you so much for the printables!! They make a stressful time (I just got over Kidney Stones and have kidney probs.) and he’s going to be going in for surgery in Dec. (colon situation) so we needed to start early. Get in the spirit of Christmas when we are finding it so hard to do. Thank you!

    I tried to download the calendar from link – but its not working. Anyway the file can be emailed to me?? Thanks!!

    • You have to have the newest version of Adobe Acrobat. This happened to me, too, but after I updated my version it downloaded perfectly! Good luck!

  8. I made these advent calendars this year for my two oldest children. The turned out so beautiful and were really easy to put together. As you said, my son especially appreciated the Star Wars themed banner! Thanks for all you do. Your work is beautiful :-)

  9. Thank you Amy for such a beautiful idea and design!!!! I made a Chinese version of scripture advent calendar out of it. You are amazing!! Please see my work here:

  10. Hi Amy!

    I know we’re 7 days into December but I dislike the advent calendar we currently have. I LOVE yours!! I’m having a difficult time downloading the calendar. I’m able to download other items from your site. Hoping you can help

    Thank you!
