The anticipation of Christmas Day makes me feel like a little kid! Capture the joy of counting down the days until Christmas with a fun, and more economical, twist on a traditional printable advent calendar. I designed this fun Christmas countdown coloring calendar featuring beloved Christmas friends like snowmen, reindeer, elves, and Santa so your family can mark the days from the beginning of December until Christmas!

Save the Christmas countdown calendar to your computer, and then send it to your printer. You can even print this printable using the black & white setting on your printer, since you will be adding the color yourself later.
HOW DOES AN ADVENT CALENDAR WORK?
I suppose this is technically more of a count UP calendar than a countdown, but you get the idea. Like a traditional Christmas Advent calendar, beginning December 1st, your child (or you) can color in that day’s calendar square with crayons, markers, or colored pencils. Color in a new square every day of the month of December, counting down the days until Christmas on the 25th!
If you are using this printable in a classroom, you can designate a new student to color in the day’s square on the Christmas coloring countdown calendar each morning. This fun Christmas activity can be way to teach ordinal counting and calendars to young kids.
