I remember counting down the days until Christmas when I was a little girl. It somehow made the waiting a little easier–I suppose because I could see each day that we really were getting a little closer to the big day. Back then we used an old-fashioned calendar to count down the days, but today we’d like to share with you a fun Christmas Countdown that you can print out and use to help your children count the days until Christmas. It’s free and easy to use, so grab your free printable and get ready to count down the days until Christmas!
For those of you who want to simply print and cut out the countdown, you can see from the photo above (on the left) that it’s beautiful just the way it is! I mounted the first page (the “main page” with the snow globe) on red paper, and I cut out the circle for the first day of the countdown and placed it on the snow globe. It’s that simple! All you have to do is cut out the numbers and tape that day’s number on the snow globe.
My youngest child and I are artsy-craftsy, though, so we wanted to try making it a little bit fancier. We took each day (each number) and mounted it on a piece of Christmas-patterned paper. Whether you choose to do it the simple cut-it-out-and-be-done-with-it way or whether you choose the spruce-it-up-a-little way, it’ll be fun and easy to use. And honestly, it really is beautiful either way!
If you want to, you can use a laminating machine to laminate your countdown so you can easily use it year after year. Or you can save it to your computer and print out a new one each year.
Whatever you choose to do, we truly do hope you enjoy this Christmas countdown printable and that you and your family have a blessed Christmas.
