Countdown till Christmas

We started our festive month off by making an advent countdown calendar in Santa's beard. I printed the numbers backwards in the beard. After the kids assembled it, I gave them 25 cotton balls and they were supposed to glue on ball on per day, starting with the largest number. Not only is it a very cute Santa to hang up and display, it also tells them exactly how many days are left until Christmas.

All of them turned out darling. This was such a fun little project that I even had my own kids make one.
