Christmas is coming, are you ready? Have the kids been asking how many more days until Christmas? You may be considering a chocolate filled Advent calendar, but do they need more sugar? No, they don’t. How can you mark the days and still stay focused on the real meaning of Chirstmas? Beyond the Stick Figure’s Christmas Countdown Paper Chain is just what you need.
This is an easy, but fun art project for all ages. Would be perfect for a family fun afternoon. Gear up for Christmas in the best way possible, by looking forward to the best present of all, Christ the Savior. Once the paper chain is created, this project has only just begun. Display it in a prominent place like on the mantel, or around the Chirstmas tree. Then each day, remove one link and read the accompanying verse. Create a Christmas Countdown Paper Chain for each child or let them take turns opening a link.
