12 Days of Christmas Crafts - Day 1 - Countdown to Christmas

Waiting for Christmas Day to arrive can be tough. The anticipation of Santa's visit, family gatherings, and special gifts can make each day seem like an eternity. With an advent calendar, you countdown each day until Christmas in a special way.

A fun way to count down the days until Christmas. Make an advent collage with these printable templates and magazine pictures.

Supplies Needed:
Markers or Crayons

Simply print out either the Christmas stocking or gift picture from the templates below and color it. Go through magazines, catalogs, and newspaper ads, find small pictures of items you want for Christmas, and cut them out. Starting on December 1st, glue one of your pictures onto the stocking or gift. Glue on one a day until Christmas eve; leave your stocking or gift advent picture out for Santa to see when he comes!
