Better late than never, right?
We made Christmas countdown chains today because I loved them as a kid and even though we got a late start I couldn't stand the thought of missing a year!
I love this project because it's easy and fast and my kids love ripping off one chain each night until Christmas.
I cut red and green strips 8 inches by 1 inch and then had them number 1-25 odd numbers on the red strips and even numbers on the green. Then we stapled each link together and attached it to a star I let them decorate themselves. The whole project took less than half an hour!
