FREE Printable Advent Calendar
What type of Advent Calendar’s do you use for your kids to count down the days until Santa comes? There are so many different options out there but so many of them revolve around buying more stuff for kids, things like candy and small gifts.
Don’t get me wrong, that’s a lot of fun too but I thought finding an activity for them to do that resulted in a fun craft at the end would be a great option! This Santa Beard Advent Calendar is the perfect Count Down To Christmas for kids and lets them have some arts and crafts fun too!

Print out your FREE Santa Beard Advent Calendar
Let your little ones color and decorate Santa any way they want!
Cut out the Santa Head and glue it to a piece of construction paper, this will give the paper a little more support as you are gluing all the cotton balls on.
Starting on December 1st have your kids glue one cotton ball on each date of the beard until Santa’s beard is white full and fluffy!
Even though my boys are a little older they thought this was a fun idea and wanted to use it as our Advent Calendar this Christmas. My little guy loves gluing anything and everything in site so this is perfect for him! There are so many times I find him in my Craft room “creating” or “inventing”, I love it and I take full credit of his talents.
What Advent Calendars are you doing this year? I love seeing all the beautiful and fun ideas but this year, I thought simple was the way to go for my guys!
