Santa's getting ready for Christmas and he needs to trim his whiskers! Create this adorable Christmas Countdown Chain to help your kiddos keep track of how many days are left until Christmas morning... How fun! For a better look at what's included, just click on PREVIEW!
You'll find all the templates you need to create the Santa Claus shown in the picture, along with an original countdown poem called, "Santa's Whiskers". For the paper chain, simply cut white or gray construction paper into 1x9 inch strips. To determine how many strips each student needs for their paper chain, it's always fun to figure that out as a class... just project a calendar on the Smart Board and count the days together! You can also create a classroom version... just assemble the Santa face without the poem, laminate, attach a paper chain and display it along with the included poster. So fun!!!
