I wanted something that was easy for kids to take ownership of, and did not rely necessarily on mom's help, so I created this simple kids' countdown for the Advent season. I tried to make it completely kid-doable so that busy (sick, tired, well-intentioned, etc.) parents can print and go with it very easily.
I know what it's like to keep life simple and as easy as possible to get through a day, a week, a season. It's been a few years since I have looked forward eagerly to Advent and Christmas. Hopefully this little bit helps you and your kids no matter what's going on in your life.
