Well, technically this is a countdown to the Xmas holidays! (So I guess it's really for the teachers, not the kids ~ tee hee). We've made this before when we count down to Xmas Day and they take it home with them on the last day of school. But I always wonder whether or not they actually continue with it at home. So this year I've made the countdown to the 16th. If you get out of school at a different time and REALLY want this sheet, just let me know and I'll post a revised copy.
The children colour Santa's face and hat, cut it out, then glue it onto a piece of red construction paper. Then they cut again, but this time they leave a red border around the edges. Each day they glue a big, fat, fuzzy cotton ball onto the appropriate number. So much fun and excitement!!
Hope it's useful!
