Christmas Count Down

While scrolling through Pinterest the last few weeks, I saw a Christmas Count Down board that was so simple ~ a clip board jazzed up for the season with "Days till Christmas" at the bottom.  You'd then clip on the days till Christmas number like a regular sheet of paper cut down some.  Very clever idea, worthy of recreating.  I thought it might be nice to add an activity to the back side of the number, so there would be something to do each day.  Not sure what all would go on this list, but here are some ideas:
  1. daily Advent activities
  2. make hot chocolate with candy cane stir stick (dip the non-hook end in melted chocolate or something fun like that)
  3. make Christmas Cards
  4. drive around neighborhood to look at lights
  5. watch a Christmas themed movie (repeat as often as necessary to get to 25)
  6. go into D.C. to look at National Tree and State Trees
  7. bake cookies
  8. make Christmas candy
  9. read some Christmas books cuddled under blanket
  10. invite friends over for Christmas sing along
  11. deliver treats to neighbors
  12. make wrapping paper
  13. look up/research favorite Christmas songs or activities
  14. see a live Nativity in your area (if available)
  15. take some corny family Christmas photos
  16. see how many things you can be thankful for from the past year
  17. Christmas Party!
This may be a good enough start to a list!  Don't want to overwhelm ourselves during this holiday.  Now to keep my eye out for good bargain on clipboard andChristmas Paper.
