Christmas Countdown Ideas

I love the idea of starting a countdown to Christmas. I used to have a calendar growing up that had a different ornament each day to put on a small tree. It made me so darn excited each morning! It also incentivized me to be nice so I could pick the ornament and place it on the tree 🙂 This year I’m starting up the tradition for my family, but instead of just ornaments, I’m adding in festive and sweet ideas to make every day a surprise!

This one from Target is adorable! I also like how the numbers are out of order and the kids have to find the next one. Send me pics if you’re using too!

Love this one from Target!
