We have three ways to countdown to Christmas at our house.

1. DD has her own Sesame Street countdown hanging on her bedroom door. There a big Elmo & a Christmas tree with 25 buttons on it. There are 25 small square ornaments with a number on one side & a Sesame Street character or Christmas symbol on the other side. Each night she pulls a number & hangs it on a button.

2. I printed off a Santa face with 24 numbered circles on it. Each night DD puts one cotton ball on the face.

3. I printed off a picture of Jesus, Mary & Joseph, with 24 stars above them. Each night DD colors one star.

We do all of these just before DD goes to bed. Some nights we get too busy & have to do multiple nights on one night! This year, I'll try to just do one each night!
