This is a super easy and quick Christmas countdown activity you can do each morning with even very young children at the breakfast table. We did it last year with Big M when she was only 2…

I initially found the countdown template on Pinterest. You can download and print it out for free here. I got a large bag of assorted Christmas colored pom poms at Michael’s… which worked out great, because it gave us an extension activity – Big M had to sort out the small, white pom poms for the beard. We saved them in a small plastic bowl for easy access each day. She enjoyed it so much, that every morning she asked for more pom poms and created an activity all on her own – Sorting and Patterns with Pom Poms!
She was so excited when the beard was full!
