CHRISTmas Countdown

I am on such a clipboard kick lately! I searched all over for a cute countdown that incorporated the true meaning of Christmas and I didn't quite find it, so I used the clipboard idea from eighteen25 and the countdown ideas from here and put them together!

Round edge puncher
Laminator (optional)

After I painted the edges of the clipboard, I laminated and adhered my Christmas paper. Then I went and bought some Christmas ribbon by the yard (1/4 yard of each) and loosely tied them to the top. Next I cut all my numbers on my Cricut and glued them on my 5x7 white cardstock

Each number card is laminated and has a Christmas activity on the back that includes a scripture, hymn, and activity - these I printed and glued - And some I changed to make them more age appropriate

And because I want mine to really last, I laminated everything but you certainly don't have to. It's funny that this looks to simple, but is very time-consuming if you do it the same way I did! That's okay, it was worth it for how sturdy it is!

I think it turned out great! I love how neat and clean it looks! **Side note: I realize the activities might seem a little "dry" but are we incorporating them along side the more "fun and traditional" Christmas activities so we get both aspects of Christmas - I hope that came out right :) **

I'm linking up to these blogs this week!
