Next cut out the printables and begin decorating your can! We used an old paint can for our Christmas Day Countdown. If you don’t have an empty paint can on hand you can grab one here, or you can pick one up at your local home improvement store.

Christmas Day Countdown Activity Envelopes
This Christmas Countdown promises family fun and treasured memories! For each day until Christmas, we’ve provided an Activity Card to help you celebrate the holiday season with your family up until Christmas. Use our suggested activities or come up with your own using our blank cards!

Christmas Day Countdown Activity Cards

After you have finished selecting your Christmas Activity Cards, insert them into individual envelopes! We actually DIY’ed these envelopes with some gold striped paper and some 4-¾ x 6-1/2″ envelopes, but you could also grab some gorgeous metallic envelopes like these.

Once you have prepped all of your activity cards and inserted them into envelopes, place them in your Christmas Countdown Can. Your kids will love pulling out one card each day to find out what fun Christmas activity lies ahead. Counting down the days until Christmas has never been so fun!
