    Santa's beard. Very cute.

    I make the second one each year. I have a bell cutout and add paper chains. My kids really enjoy it.

    two countdown poems:

    For bell
    How many days till Christmas?
    It's mighty hard to tell
    Take off a link every night
    When the Sandman cast his spell
    And Christmas Eve will be here
    By the time you reach the bell.

    With candies
    December 1st till Christmas
    is the longest time of the year.
    Seems as though old Santa
    Never will appear.

    How many more days till Christmas?
    It's mighty hard to count-
    So this little candy ribbon
    Will tell you the exact amount!

    Snip off a candy every night
    When the Sandman casts his spell
    And Christmas Eve will be here
    By the time you reach the bell.


    For Star
    Each evening when goodnights are said,
    Take off one link and hop into bed.
    When only the star is left to shine,
    When you will know it's Christmastime!

    I picked up this cheap pocket calendar at the dollar store last yr. I think I'll add some sort of treat to the pockets this year for December. I've wanted to buy a nice pocket advent calendar, but never seem to get around to actually buying one.

    Those are cute, kids love those added treats. Used to do the advent calendar with our kids and they had to take turns opening the windows.
