What Do You Need for Your Christmas Activity?

All you need is a printer and these simple materials that you probably already have at home.

  • Cotton Balls (25 pieces)
  • Glue
  • And Most Importantly, a Great Attitude!

After you print out your calendar think about filling out your letter to Santa Claus.  We have made one of these for you too with an address to get you straight to Santa.

Instructions to Use Your Countdown Calendar

“His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow…”

Well, not quite. Looks like Santa needs your help to make his beard as white as the snow. Every day in December add a cotton ball to the correct number and on Christmas Eve Santa’s beard will be white as the snow! Then he’ll be ready to visit you Christmas morning.
