paper Santa countdown for last 7 days

This is a craft for the kiddies to make as time for Santa draws near, and they ask repeatedly "How many more Days?"

Just copy this onto a piece of card stock or on if you only have paper, just copy it and glue it to the back of a cereal box, and cut it out. Let the kids do the coloring and then just tie the treats on with string or yarn. Each child could make his very own Count Down to Santa.

If you don't have a Christmas countdown already, this is a cute little project you can make! The supplies used are easy to get and inexpensive.

To help the kids with counting down till Christmas and wanting to open presents I get small inexpensive gifts for as many days before Christmas as I like. I usually do two weeks. I buy small erasers, pencils, sweets, etc. and wrap each individually.

Does anyone know where to find those Christmas countdown calendars with the chocolate figures in them for each day? I looked everywhere but still can't seem to find them! Thanks so much!

I have bought them at the Christmas Tree Shop, if there is one in your area.

Try at Michael's. They usually have them there. Or, I think I've seen them at the Dollar Tree too, this year. If you have a Fresh Market in your area, they're in there, up near the checkouts.

Use rainbow colored construction paper to make a cute Christmas countdown chain. Hang it in a central spot in your home using a pipe cleaner and have the kids tear off a link everyday until Christmas.
