I did this one year with my daughter, but on each chain I put something to do to get ready for Christmas. It could be something like mail the Christmas letter, put up the tree, buy or make a gift for a friend. The simple act of being involved makes the time go faster and the kids be less preoccupied with what Santa is going to bring them. (11/10/2004)
I use an advent calendar behind each door that tells you how days. (12/12/2004)
have a link and when your child takes the link off every night make it have something written behind it; like if you are good tomorrow you will get a early present from santa - a chocolate. (08/09/2007)
