Every year I think I should mark the days until Christmas. I look at all the cute ways to do it and can never make up my mind what to do. I finally put a little countdown banner together.
The one I based it off of was sooo much cuter. How I wish I were a nifty scrapbooking kind of momma. Oh well…
Each envelope has an activity to remind us of the Christmas season. Some are focused on Christ and His birth. Some are focused on loving others and serving them as Christ served the church. Some are focused on the family and doing things that will make memories of our Christmas season and encourage us to do those fun Christmas traditions such as cookie baking or singing Christmas songs.
I arranged the activities to fit the calendar so that baking cookies falls on a Saturday and not on Thursday when we have school and dance. This year we had to hang it very high. 🙂 We are making sure no little ones come by and pull out all the cards. Yea for being done with a project.
