Santa's Countdown to Christmas


There’s ho-ho-how many days ‘til Christmas? Let Santa help you count! Here’s a fun advent calendar idea that’s easy and a little crafty… and really affordable. Plus, the kids will love it!

Shop Dollar Tree – Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • Santa’s Countdown to Christmas Printable
  • Color Printer
  • White Paper, Cotton Balls, or White Window Paint Markers
  • Picture Frame
  • Tape or Glue

Easy Step-by-Step Directions:

  1. Print the Santa’s Beard printable in color and frame it.
  2. Print the circles template page on white paper and cut them out.
  3. Each day in December, tape one of the circles over the day’s number in Santa’s beard.
  4. When Santa’s beard is complete, it’s Christmas day!

Fun Tips:

  • Instead of taping circles, you could choose to glue on cotton balls. Just be sure to remove the glass pane from the frame first. Or, you could leave the glass pane in the frame and dab each day with a white window paint marker (this will easily clean off the glass at the end of the season).
  • Make this a yearly tradition with your family.
