Countdown to Christmas

I found a really easy way to do an Advent calendar with my 16-month-old daughter.

Tree Pattern (found in December Idea Book, Karen Sevaly)
Green paper
24 Foam stickers (I use heart shaped stickers)

I traced the pattern on green paper and laminated, of course laminating is optional. Then every day we will place a sticker on the tree. When there are no more stickers it is Christmas. I placed the tree at her level so she can look at throughout the day.
I put the stickers in a decorative bag I received for Christmas years ago that had bath products in it. I saved it for "someday." I like when "someday" arrives.
