Supplies Needed!

The first thing you need to do is grab a piece of white cardstock. We find this holds up better especially with the glue, daily handling and if you choose to hang it up in your home.

If all you have is regular printer paper you can use that too!

You’ll also need cotton balls. We recommend using the regular size cotton balls and not the jumbo size. The jumbo size gets a little tight and sometimes covers the number next to it. Once again, don’t worry if that’s all you have. You can make it work!

The last thing you need is glue. We use a glue stick to make it nice and easy with no mess!

How to use the Santa Christmas Countdown!

Now that you have it printed and your supplies all you have to do is start using it!

Each day grab a cotton ball and have your kids glue it on the day of the month it is. This is perfect for little fingers. They love that they can particpate too.

We also like to go over our number recognition when they are gluing it on.

Cute, fun and easy. It doesn’t get better than this!
