Christmas Countdown

We have three Christmas Advent Calendars at our house.  I made this one last year and thought I'd repost it.  Each day we put one of these items up and do the activity listed below.  It was a great hit last year.  I used my Cricut Machine any kind of clip art would work.  I am looking forward to all the Christmas Activities we will be doing in the next month.
We will also be doing the following each day. I made this little Nativity scene with my Cricut Machine.
