December is here! That means only 25 days until Christmas! (I'm not sure who is more excited, me or the kids!) Here are a few ideas to countdown the days until Christmas!
*Make a paper chain with 25 links
December and wrote these ideas on the strips of paper. Each day we will tear off one link and focus on doing whatever it says! (If your toddler is a little young to do this, you could simply write a number and when you take each link down talk about the number and the color of the paper!)
*Make a homemade Christmas Countdown Calendar
Wal-mart! Here are the directions!
Each day we will take down a number. Inside each tin, there will be a small sticker, piece of candy or other little goodie for the kids!
