Countdown to Christmas

Last year we used a paper chain to countdown to Christmas (and practice our patterning, and end the non-stop question of ‘How many more days?)

We have an adorable advent calendar that our cousins gave us, each of the little pockets has an ornament to hang on the tree (with Velcro). I love that I don’t have to buy little junkie things for this calendar each year!


This year I was hoping to get my act together earlier and do something a little more elaborate. I was so excited when I saw one of my favorite bloggers, The Activity Mom, post an Activity Advent Calendar. I LOVE the idea of counting down to Christmas by doing something fun and holiday themed each day!

I love that she included the printable cards, Plan B activities, and a super organized materials list for the entire month!

Print out your Activity Advent Calendar today and enjoy an activity a day as you count down to Christmas!


  1. Thanks so much for spreading the word about the activity advent calendar. B had so much during Dec. last year doing it. I hope you and your readers have fun with it too. =)

    thanks again!

  2. Love that advent calendar! I am creating an activity calendar this year too.. I got the idea from The Activity Mom as well :-)
