What you need:
- Red, green, (optional yellow) construction paper
- Stapler or tape
- Markers (dark colors)
Cut construction paper according to how many days left until Christmas (vary how many of each color).
Draw something to do with Christmas (tree, star, wreath, etc.)on rings.
Staple or tape each one - drawing out - into a ring - linking each one together as you go.
Then tack onto something like a bulletin board, or the wall, and every day take one ring off.
Thanks to John (13) in Massachusetts for this fun idea.
