We all know what a huge fan I am of easy to do activities and making a Christmas countdown activity calendar is no exception. This countdown is a print and go quick 10 minute job.
There are 2 options here. First I made a calendar for the adults so that we know which day is coming up, this can also be used as is if you are not making the paper chains.
The 2nd is the paper chains. Once printed its a quick staple (or tape) to construct. We have ours hanging on the kids bedroom door.
There are 24 do-able activities on this calendar. All of them can be done at home.
The paper chains easily come apart and have extra white space on the edges so that if they tear you can still read the text.
How to make the Christmas Activity Countdown Calendar
Print the color paper pages on card stock, turn them around and then print the activities out on the back. Cut them out, sort by date, and staple them together to make a paper chain.
The activities count down from 24 to 1. So 24 will be the first number that is used / removed from the countdown calendar. The printable calendar however is dated as the calendar month of December so on 1st Dec you will start and end on 24 Dec.
Have fun! I would love to see your activities do pop on over to my activities group on facebook and share!
