Advent is a time filled with excitement and expectation. We are waiting for Christmas. There are a few ways that you can make your own advent "counter" The first you have to print out the Santa's on this page. After they are printed you need to cut them out,use white school glue and glue them onto craft sticks. Each day add a Santa counter to a block of styrofoam that you can paint green and place in a medium flower pot. The second choice is cut the Sant's out and glue them to a ribbon about 2 feet is needed. Fold the top end of the ribbon to form a loop for hanging the Santa chain and glue. Each day add a Santa using glue. I put numbers on my Santa's beard starting with 25 and count backward. The last choice is to number the Santa's as above and cut them out. Each day glue one to a large colored poster board in a line or in the form of a tree shaped like a triangle. Don't forget the trunk. I hope you enjoy making one of these Advent Projects.
