[UPDATE: The list was available for a short time as a gift to subscribers. It has been updated to include a set of countdown graphics and is now available for purchase HERE.)
Cut apart the individual activities on the list and glue on links of construction paper to make a countdown chain or use with a traditional advent calendar (flaps, pockets, boxes, etc.).
Candy on a String –Hershey’s Kisses or candy canes glued on a ribbon. (Thanks Jenny!)
Pretty Boxes –Wrap jewelry or other small boxes in Christmas paper and insert a small treat or a clue as to where to find one). Paste one number on top of each box for the days leading up to December 25th.
Tiny Cards –Write one activity or Bible Verse on each of 25 small cards (such as gift tags), place the cards in small envelopes and write the numbers 1-25 on the outside.
Pocket Advent with Gum — My Little Mochi has the cutest idea for a pocket countdown using gum.
