A Festive Tradition
This festive Christmas tree-shaped wooden Advent calendar is an attractive addition to the holiday season. The painted tree with sparkling accents stands about 16 inches (40.64 centimeter) high in a sturdy wooden base that doubles as a box to hold the adorable ornament decorations. Each ornament is decorated differently in holiday patterns and Christmas themes. Choose a special one each day leading up to Christmas Day to create a sparkling and ever-changing piece of art that adds a festive air to any mantelpiece, table, or shelf. Mark the arrival of the big day by topping the tree with the sparkling star ornament. Add to the family’s holiday cheer by reading aloud the poem on the back of the tree -- as children get older, take turns reading the lines or stanzas. This special calendar is sure to be a family favorite year after year.
Decorating your Countdown to Christmas Wooden Advent Calendar will not only become a highly anticipated annual tradition, it can also be a great way to help promote and reinforce many developmental skills as children grow from year to year. Use the numbers on the tree to help young children with number recognition and to learn to count both forwards and backwards; as they get older, ask children to add the numbers in a row. Play games with the ornaments to help develop color recognition and memory skills. For example, have kids find all of the ornaments that have red but no green or name all of the colors on individual ornaments. Or, ask them to choose five ornaments and study them carefully; then, have them to close their eyes while you remove one ornament. Can they guess which one is missing? The learning possibilities are endless!
