5 Days of Advent Calendars: Chain Calendar

5 Days of Advent Calendars: Chain Calendar

If you have a Trader Joe's (and you forgot to bring your own bag), you've seen the holiday bags with holiday tags and a chain to cut out.

When Auntie K was here she cut out all the pieces and glued most of the chain together. I counted the chain after she left and realized we only needed 3 more pieces to have 16 links so I found the extras and glued on three more.

Each day after we do our "days" (circle time) we tear off a link to countdown to Christmas (or countdown to leaving town for Christmas).

I love the simplicity of this countdown and that it recycles!

Do you have an Advent countdown activity?
