These cards are perfect for kids of all ages and will really help students focus on what is important during the holidays season. A great way to build character and classroom community!

WHAT IS INCLUDED
-25 Countdown Cards: Each card has the day number on the front and an act of kindness for students to perform on the back. Print them double-sided on card stock, or glue the front and back together.
