Advent Santa

I saw this idea on a Home Ed Facebook group page and loved it. I knew it would be a perfect thing to do with my kids as the boys especially are very visual and after 10 days of “Is it Christmas yet?” I needed an idea to help them actually see how long was left until The Big Day!!!

So, start with a large piece of paper, some felt tips, paint, cotton wool and pom poms.

I drew round a plate for Santa’s face, then drew a hat and long beard. I drew lines across the beard to create 25 sections.

We cut a section of Santa’s beard off every day and as his beard gets shorter, Christmas gets closer! When Santa has no beard left…. THEN it is Christmas 🙂
