Santa Christmas Countdown Printable
As a kid, the anticipation of Santa’s arrival has to be one of the highlights of the Christmas season. I remember going to bed on Christmas Eve with butterflies in my stomach, just waiting to see what Santa put out by the fireplace.
And it isn’t just about the gifts, either. (Although those are always nice!) There’s just so much excitement in knowing that a surprise guest will be visiting your house and leaving something for you, no matter how big or small it is.
Kids can have a really hard time waiting for Christmas and understanding just how far away—or close—Christmas day actually is. To them, the holidays are a slew of delicious Christmas cookies and trips to yet another store. They know the big day is coming, but they just don’t know exactly when it will be here.
You can help build up the anticipation and give them a visual for Santa’s big arrival with this Christmas countdown. Print this adorable Santa out and hang it in the house. Each morning after another day goes by, stick a cotton ball or pom pom on Santa’s beard to countdown the days to Christmas.
You’ll love growing his beard as a family with this super cute and non-traditional advent calendar. Plus, it’s completely free to print at home! You can stick with a classic Santa Claus and add white cotton balls for a soft fluffy beard, or switch it up with colorful pom poms for a fun and festive twist! Either way this is a fun and inexpensive Christmas activity that the whole family will love.
