My kids look forward to the advent season every year and really enjoy all the prep and fun activities we do leading up to Christmas. We kick off the season with an Advent calendar. This year I am sharing a Christmas countdown printable with fun activities for the last 12 days leading up to Christmas. Add scratch off stickers to make this a fun activity for your family.

Printable Christmas countdown with scratch off stickers
My kids love finding a piece of candy each day as they countdown to Christmas, but our favorite part is having a special activity for each day on the calendar. I have shared a magnetic calendar as well as an Ikea countdown both filled with daily activities to get your family into the holiday spirit.
These activities are usually free and easy to do any night of the week. Baking cookies, reading a Christmas book, or making a noodle garland. This year I included a blank countdown printable as well so you can add your own activities.

Here’s how it works
Print off the calendar and add your own activities or use the version with activities already added. Grab a pack of these scratch off stickers and stick one over each circle. These stickers are so much fun to use, I know you’ll find uses for them throughout the year.
Each day kids get to pick a circle and scratch it off to reveal that day’s activity!
