Christmas Book Countdown

Christmas Book Countdown Advent

Here’s a quick and easy activity we do to countdown to Christmas day. Unwrap and read a Christmas book each day until Christmas!

Christmas Book Countdown Advent

It’s already December 2 and I haven’t wrapped the books yet this year. Oops. I always tell myself that I’m going to get these things done before Thanksgiving and then I always forget, or someone gets sick, or I’m distracted by something shiny. Maybe I should wrap them this year before I pack them away. That sounds smar…Squirrel! Wait, what was I saying?

Christmas Morning Tradition: Gift Wrap Doorway10wayschristmaspjs1

  1. We’re doing something very similar this year! The only real difference is the way they are wrapped. I used Christmas wrapping paper and using it like a book cover (like paper bag book covers in high school…remember that???) then you can stand them with the spine pointed up and they look like Christmas trees. 😀 (But I’ve only wrapped five so far, so I might wrap them the other way, ’cause that seems like it’s faster). 🙂


    • I’ve seen that on Pinterest…so cute! I thought about doing that, but I don’t really have anywhere to display them 😦 My little guy would just rip the paper off anyway.

      What I really want to do is get or make some fabric bags or wraps to reuse each year but I don’t sew…and I’m lazy.
