Santa’s Countdown to Christmas!

Action Jackson is getting to the age where visual displays help to let him know when something important is coming up. Well Christmas is only days away. I have never done an advent calendar and don’t really like the idea of all the little toys or candies in there. Mainly because they will all be gone before Christmas arrives.  So instead I went to Joann’s and found a felt santa.  Since I wanted to do a countdown somehow I thought that I get some white pom poms and glue them each day onto Santa’s beard. Here’s what we did:

Step 1: We had to glue all the pieces of Santa together. The pre-made kit can be bought at Joann’s for $10. We put it together with Glue Dots.



Step 2: Line up all your pom poms in the order you want them. You should have 24 (Since Santa comes on Christmas Eve).


Step 3: One by one take off the pom- poms and number with a sharpie. 24 should be at the end of the beard to make it full when it is finished.


Step 4: Hang him up and add a pom pom each day! We have been using the glue dots and they work just fine.
