Share this printable resource with the families in your ministry to help them make a paper chain with daily activities that engage kids, connect families, and point to Jesus as we countdown to Christmas.
This Christmas Countdown Chain provides 30 different activity strip options for a Christmas paper chain. Select the ones that best fit your children/families, or allow them to select their own. As a leader, you’ll assemble and distribute the printables (and optional supplies) for families to cut the strips apart and tape them together to create a countdown activity paper chain.
Each day, families will tear off a chain and do that activity with their child/children. Each activity has a description to clarify and describe the activity. These activities will help keep children active, families connected, and the reason for the season clear during the month of December.
