12 Fun and Creative Christmas Countdowns

My kids love countdowns, actually I love them too. Our Christmas countdown this year is really simple. I’ll share it with you later this week but until then I though I’d share with you some of our previous ones. Before I started my blog I also did some quick and easy countdowns: paper chains, cotton balls for Santa’s beard, candy chain, and moving Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem. My kids loved them all, but here are a little more creative ideas.

This is probably my favorite so far. It was just really fun and I thought pretty creative. I love how vintage and colorful it is.

This one is really simple and literally came together in minutes. Sometimes simple is better.

Christmas Countdown 2011

This one ended up being more detailed than I thought. I used it 2 years in a row because I wanted to get good use out of my time spent on it.
