It's December 1, and it's time to start "counting down" to Christmas. Luckily, last night (while we were sleeping) our Elf on the Shelf decided to put together a Christmas countdown for us.
If you don't have an Elf on the Shelf, this is still a great idea. Dig out 24 of your Christmas books and movies, wrap them up, and number them. Then, each day, the kids unwrap and read/watch the book/movie they opened that day. Fun, right?
Our Elf is usually pretty smart. He numbers the books/movies to ensure that there is always a movie on family movie night, and "The Night Before Christmas" is always the last book my boys open. Such a clever Elf!
How do you count down to Christmas?
