Christmas Countdown Tree and Grateful Jar

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ

Description

Children make Christmas Trees out of paper shapes/drawings. They add one pom pom/sequin/sticker etc each day leading up to Christmas. (Advent Calendar variation).
Pom poms are kept in specially decorated 'Grateful Jars'. When the child gets a pompom out to stick on the tree, they need to think of something that they are grateful for.

One pom pom is attached for each day leading up to Christmas.
