Month of JOY: Christmas Countdown

Christmas time brings so much JOY to little children, they are oblivious to the hustle and bustle of the season and simply marvel in its magic....ahhh to be young again!
To harness some of that excitement and wonder we created a Christmas countdown picture frame. Before  bed each night we remove one of the clips...counting down to the big day!
We found a wooden frame at our local Hobby Lobby and painted it blue. We used a branch from our Christmas tree dipped into some white paint to add some snowflakes to her frame. I spray painted the small clips I found at Hobby lobby with some glitter spray paint....I had no idea they even made that what a great invention....I see lots of glitter in my crafting future :) Kaitlyn decorated her frame with Santa stickers she picked out and viola we were done....each day she removes a clip as we get closer and closer to December 25th!
