Countdown Santa

I will definitely post pictures of this.  My sister has asked me to help the kids make a “Countdown Santa”.  Basically a kid friendly advent calendar.  When I was very little, my Sunday School teacher gave me one and my family used it every year.  It holds candy canes that are tied on with yarn and there is a bell at the bottom.

There is poem that is attached to Santa’s beard that reads:

December 1st to Christmas
Is the longest time of the year.
Seems as though old Santa
Never will appear.

How many days to Christmas
Is mighty hard to count.
So this little candy ribbon
Will tell the exact amount.

Untie one candy each night
When Santa casts his spell.
And Christmas Eve will be here
By the time you reach the bell.

Yes, I will be making these to sell.  😀
