This is a fun activity to help children count down the days until Christmas. Just glue one cotton ball onto Santa's beard each day. By the time Christmas comes, Santa will have a full, bushy beard! This set includes step-by-step directions with photographs and a printable Santa's Beard Countdown page. It can be done in the classroom as a whole group at calendar time each day, or it can be copied off and sent home for children to complete on their own at home.
