We’ve had our first snowfall of the season today and as they say… it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
The first parade of the season was this past weekend, the local radio station has switched to holiday tunes and neighbours houses are starting to light up the night.
I managed to get my winter planters arranged yesterday, just in time for a major temperature drop and have actually done a fair bit of online shopping.
With December 1st a little over a week away, it’s time to dust off the kids countdown calendar and get ready for the fun-filled days leading up to the jolliest of holidays.
I updated the look of my calendar last year from this…
… to this pretty mint and gold confetti paper background. The great thing about this project is that you can customize the calendar to match your holiday decor or simply pick a wrapping paper you love.
I also found these gold and silver gift tags and decided to use these for the messages instead of white paper, as they added a touch of bling.
You can read the full tutorial from last year for making your very own countdown calendar here. This project is really easy to put together and makes counting down the days to Christmas loads of fun for the whole family.
You can also download these FREE printables I created and cut them out for use in your own calendar, or simply use some ideas and add your own.
I would love new suggestions for countdown ideas, so please share in the comments. Happy creating little elves!
