Advent or Winter Countdown Calendar

Start an easy Advent calendar or winter countdown! Cut out two large white construction paper circles. Have child draw a snowman face on one, while you draw numbers on the body (buttons opt) like countdown style, big enough to be covered by a cotton ball, leaving the 1 all alone at the bottom.


Paste the head on the body (add arms and hat) then every night paste a cotton ball over the number to show how many days left until Christmas or any other special day. Can also use a tree with ball decorations (color pompoms). My 4 year old loves countdowns, and when we had presents under the tree, he understood not to touch them until ALL the numbers were covered with snow balls! It was a fun bedtime ritual to glue them on.
