How many days until Christmas???

I know this is REALLY late! SORRY!!!


This was super simple!!

All you need for this is a piece of cardboard, stickers, tape, small plastic cups, Hershey kisses, Christmas themed paper cut-outs glue, and a permanent marker.

Let me start with the cardboard part of the calendar:

I dipped into my scrapbook pages and used my double stick tape to tape 2 pieces together and then used more double stick tape to tape the papers to the card board.

{You don't need to do this you can leave your cardboard plain but I was feeling crafty :) }

I centered the papers on the piece of cardboard and punched out some of  the letters in my scrap-booking stash...

Using elmers glue I arranged and glued the letters to the top of the pages...

This is where the rest of the stuff comes in (along with your little one)...

Count out 25 small cups and place them 'upside down' on your cardboard...

Using the stickers have your little one place 1 sticker on the bottom of each cup....

Have your little one line the cups up on your piece of cardboard....

{They may need your help making them all fit...}

If your child is old enough have them remove the cups and place numbers where the cups were.....
[Making sure to count down from 25 to 1.....1 being the last cup]


Once the numbers are there have your little one place 1 kiss on each number....


Place 1 piece of tap on the side of the cup that will be facing the top of the board... 


Do this until all the kisses are covered again....

If your child would like add a few Christmas themed paper cute outs to decorate. Hang it up and enjoy the count down!!!

Pull one cup off each night revealing the number of days left until Christmas!
