Count Down to Christmas With This December Freebie!

Kids love to count down the days until Santa arrives.

Here's a fun freebie for you.


I have lot's of little ones on my caseload, and they are already thinking about Christmas coming. I love to have a few Santa-themed activities for them in December, so I made this cute Santa with 25 circles for a fun countdown.

There are lot's of ways to use this cute holiday gift:

1. Use it as an advent calendar, and glue a cottonball on Santa's Beard each day. It is provided in both color and black and white for you.

2. Use  as a craftivity during your December speech sessions... Give a cottonball or crumpled piece of white tissue paper for each response. and cover each circle. Choose the black and white version if the children will be coloring Santa.

3. Use the black and white sheet without the numbers as a dot marker sheet or with bingo chips. Fun!

Here are some of the comments and ideas on how to use this resource at my Teachers pay Teachers store, Speech Sprouts:

Lauren R. said:
This is great to use as a game in speech-language therapy where they fill in Santa's beard! Thank you!

Lisa H. said:
Looking forward to using during artic drills - cover with magnetic chips or do-a-dot. Thanks for the freebie.

Jodi C. said:
great for roll and cover during articulation therapy. Thanks so much for the Santa theme.
Buyer said:
Love this! When I was little, I think a soda company gave out the same type of thing. It was always a favorite!

Counseling with HEART (TpT Seller) said:
This is adorable! I have kindergarten lunch duty each day and I will be using this as part of my behavior management. Each day the class earns a brag during lunch, they get to put a cotton ball on Santa's beard. Once they fill his beard completely, I'll give them a yummy treat: candy cane or hot chocolate or holiday cookies... So excited!

  1. Very cute! Do you let the children take their Santa home to finish it during break?

    1. Hi Mary! Yes, I hang a copy in my speech room so the kids can see the countdown. They are so excited to see the beard "grow"! Then each child gets a black and white copy to color and gets started adding cottonballs the first of December. Then, that one is sent home for a fun family activity!
