Santa's Beard Countdown to Christmas Calendar. Perfect for kids to work on fine motor & cutting skills. Maybe a snowman to countdown to winter/Christmas break. Or a flower or spring item with wavy lines for Spring break countdown.
Danish tradition: Weaved Heart Basket Patterns - Much more challenging but would look great on a tree. The cool thing about them, is you can staple a handle on them and then fill with treats and hang on Christmas tree.
