Starting from December 1st, this free printable is a fun way for kids to visually see how many days are left until Santa Claus makes his grand appearance.

Children will glue cotton balls to fill in the beard and can personalize their Santa beard countdown any way they can imagine. Does Santa have pink polka dots in his beard?

How to Display Your Santa Christmas Calendar

You can leave your Santa beard countdown craft on a table where the kids have easy access, or simply tape or pin it to the wall maybe somewhere close to the Christmas tree.

If the paper is on the wall though, you will have to hold the cotton ball until the glue dries a bit so it doesn’t fall.

Either way, when the kids will wake up each day that’s the first thing they’ll want to do. And as a bonus, your littlest ones will be working on their fine motor skills and number recognition.
