The Inspired Notebook: Christmas Countdown


I'm so excited next we start counting down to Christmas in our home! It always surprises how fast time flies. 


To make sure we don't miss any of our favorites Christmas activities, movies, food, and music we add something special to each countdown card!


It's so easy to make one too! Just follow these simple steps:
  • Create Number Cards - I printed a sheet from the Countdown Planner onto card stock, cut out the cards, and hole punched the tops
  • Plan your Countdown - you can simply take turns writing activities on the back of each card or you can print activity cards from the planner too
  • Display your Countdown - I love to "think up" new ways to display our countdown each year.  This year I tucked a vintage style days of the week card into a frame I painted to match. Then I wrapped a large silk bow across the top and thread each number card onto another ribbon. I just tied it all to the bow and now we're ready to start flipping cards Dec 13th


Join me on Instagram @lifenreflection starting Dec 13th as we countdown to Christmas!
