Are you counting down the days to the holiday season? So are we! And we've got a special Holiday Counter that you and the whole family can use each day as you get in the spirit for the pending season!
- Construction paper (pick your favorite holiday colors)
On the construction paper, place the ruler parallel to the short side and trace down the right side of the ruler.
Move the ruler over and place the left side on the pen line, then draw another line down the right side of the ruler.
Keep going until the whole paper is sectioned off. You'll get about 7 - 8 strips per sheet of paper depending on how wide your ruler is.
Cut out all the strips. You will want 26 strips total - 25 rings for the countdown and then one for the top.
Roll one piece of paper into a circle and staple it. Put another strip of paper through the circle, then roll it and staple. Repeat this process to make a chain.
Add fun embellishments if you want to the last ring, like Christmas tree, bow or a mini wreath. This will be the top ring of your countdown to the holidays.
Hang your chains on the wall near your tree or in a place where the kids can reach.
Use scissors to cut off one of the rings each day in December through Christmas morning in your countdown to the holidays!
