Think the DCs are too old for the Lego/Playmobil advent calendars this year..... but what can I get instead?

They love the opening one every day thing.....

How about a fabric one with the little pockets that you can put small gifts in.

You don't say how old/what sex but you can put gifts in some days (eg. hair clips, small nail varnish, expanding face cloth ) and sweets or chocolates on other days

We have a fabric one with pockets. The girls take turns in getting the gifts.

I have one with little pockets in and every day I leave a clue as to where something is hidden. It might be a pencil, rubber, chocolates anything really. The thrill is in finding it.
