Fillers for Advent Calendars

Posted on


Creating your own Advent calendar, or filling little drawers or stockings has become really popular. I have had a few people ask about toys which can specifically fit into small pockets as an alternative to a chocolate treat. 

I have a drawer advent calendar whereby the drawers are only 3cm square so I know how difficult it is to find small items which will be enjoyed. 

Here are a few ideas of wooden toys that you could include in your advent calendar. I have chosen small items but please check specific sizes if you are limited on space. 

Click on the title of each toy for more details

1. Fairytale Finger Puppets - £14.50 for a set of 6.

A set of 6, you could easily fill up 6 days with these little puppets. 


2. Christmas Stamps - £5.75 for a set of 3. 

Perfect for Advent, to create Christmas Cards and fun seasonal crafts. 


3. Christmas Tree Threading Set - £3.50

A bit bigger - so please check the size, but a great craft idea, maybe for after the schools break up.
