Hanging up your Christmas countdown in different ways to make it more festive or creative

There are many ways you can hang up your countdown to make it more festive.

One idea is to hang the little blocks up as they will be easier to see and distribute around the house (i.e., in each room).

You could also make a big countdown printable by laminating or mounting your strips on different colored poster boards and hanging them up together across a doorway, mantel, or fireplace.

After Christmas, save your Christmas Countdown Printable to use for next year’s or the following years’ celebrations!

After Christmas is over, you can save your countdown strips to use again.

Just laminate them or mount them onto poster boards and keep all the little blocks together in a baggie for future years.

Tips on using this Christmas countdown printable in a classroom setting

Using this countdown in a classroom setting is a great way to get the younger students excited about counting down the days until Christmas.

It’s also a fun project for older students who are learning to count!

Here are some ideas of how you can use this Christmas Countdown Printable in your classroom:

– Put the countdown strips around the room so that kids can ‘mark off’ each day they count.

– Younger students could count the number of days left using hand motions or claps.

– Older students can create subtraction problems by counting down from 30, then subtracting that number from their total. For example, if there are 11 days left until Christmas, what is that number minus 10?

– Older students can make division problems by counting down from 30, then dividing that number by 3. For example, if there are 11 days left until Christmas, what is that number divided by three?

– Younger students could do an addition problem for each day they count.

– Younger or older students can create word problems involving Santa’s trip! How many more hours does he have to fly? What time will he arrive at my house? Etc
