Since Thomas had a Christmas countdown (see Santa Countdown), Gracie needed (uhum, wanted) one too.
So I colored this Rudolph picture and cut out red construction paper noses. I stapled the noses together after writing the number of days left until Christmas. Make sure you stack them 14, 13, 12...until you get to 1. I used heavy packing (clear) tape to stick the last nose to the Rudolph picture.
She pulls off a nose each night, and loves it.
There is still time for a countdown, so if you want to make a Rudolph one--here's the coloring page I used.
Mommy Tip: remind your child to pull off the nose gently. Even stapled and taped on their, it may come off a few times.
