Christmas Countdown Ideas
It’s almost the most magical time of the year! Advent began last week but there is something special about December 1 as we countdown or count up to the days leading to Christmas. It is such a special holiday and my kids enjoy all the different traditions that we have. Advent calendars, countdown activity calendars, and Jesse tree ornaments are some of the things that we like to do as a family leading up to Christmas. I’m sharing a free printable and some ideas of things we have done in the past and will be doing in the month of December. Scroll down below to see all of them!
diy Pallet Tree
This Pottery Barn inspired pallet tree was a simple and free project that I did during nap time quite a few years ago. Quick rundown, I cut down the pallet into a tree shape and then painted it all white. I sewed up these linen bags, trimmed them with scrap fabric and then stenciled numbers 1-25 in red paint. I wood glued clothespins to hold up the bags. In each bag I placed a fun treat or small toy for the kids to find each day we got closer to Christmas!
