Countdown to Christmas 2013 ~ Day 1

We've made it to December!!!
 Our Countdown to Christmas is underway, and the girls couldn't be more excited!

December 1st started with a welcome back to our elf, Holly.
She had planned an entire North Pole Breakfast for the girls.

Turns out snowflake pancakes are yummier than regular ol' pancakes :)


Our December 1st activity was to make a candy countdown chain.
To make your own you'll need:
 saran wrap {I like red},
24 candies,
26 pieces of ribbon,
and numbered tags.


Line up your candies, fold over the saran wrap, tie ribbon and tags between each piece,
and voila ~ advent calendar!


Today we are making Christmas accessories for our American Girl dolls ~ stockings, presents, and the like!

We're also counting down with Bible verses for each day.

December 1st : John 1: 1-5
December 2nd: Isaiah 9: 2-7

Do you have great countdown ideas?
Please share!

I do love your countdown! I love the candy countdown idea. Where are you getting your verses from each in is there a plan that you are following. I need to find a good one for the kids. Last year we did one with the Jesus Storybook Bible but I'd like to find another one.
