Whilst on my quest to find non-chocolate advent calendars for Christmas. I was contacted by Play Hooray to see if I would like to take a look at their Play Prompts Christmas Calendar. This advent calendar gives you the chance to spend time with your child being creative. I was more than happy to include it in my look at non-chocolate advent calendars.

The Smiggle, Hatchimals, Snow White, No7 Beauty, Peppa Pig, Playmobil Santa’s Workshop, Disney Animators Collection, Soap & Glory, LEGO Star Wars, Yankee Candle, Vtech Toot-Toot Friends, Disney Mickey Mouse and the Superdrug Flutter Beauty advent calendars.

My Thoughts On The Play Hooray Play Prompts Christmas Calendar
I really love this Christmas calendar idea. We had to work on Ethan’s sensory needs when he was younger. This calendar includes quite a few of the activities that he used to do. It is so nice to have the prompts to give you the daily activities. What is great about this Christmas calendar is that it is reuseable. This means it can be used year after year. This can then become your new family Christmas tradition!
This Christmas calendar is for ages 1 and over. It has a RRP of £12 can can be purchased on the Play Hooray Website.
