Counting Up or Down?
You can actually count-up or count down. If you have very young kids, it might be easier to start from 1. For older kids, I would start from 25, so that they can see how many days there are left to Christmas.
Marking the Days
Here are some ideas:
- Colour In
- Circle around
Making Your Own
Michigan Cantonese Storytime has shared a beautiful hand drawn Countdown Calendar. If you feel up to it, I would encourage you to draw your own!
Download the free Christmas Tree Countdown Calendar printable! I have included a version with numerals, in case that is your preference.
How are you counting down to Christmas?
