Ever since Halloween passed, it looks like Christmas vomited in every store. Now don’t get me wrong, Christmas is my favorite holiday, but I love Thanksgiving too! To me, there’s nothing better than an intentional day of gratefulness before we celebrate the greatest Gift of all!
I’m so excited that in a mere two weeks, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with family!
Two weeks before every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, we do a twelve day countdown and it’s become a tradition in our family. My kids will be thrilled when it’s time to start it!
My mom found it a few years ago on Dayspring and the kids love it. Each numbered block holds a tile.
My kids love to fight over who gets to look in the box every day (it’s lovely, haha).
There is a booklet that comes with the countdown that provides a guide for discussion for each tile. I like that it’s kept short and sweet since attention spans in my house are fleeting!
Once a day is completed, you turn the box to reveal a piece of a larger picture that the kids will see on the last day.
The countdown is about $25, but watch for it to go on sale and you can find it for approximately $10.
This is a great tool that will commence great discussion and thought with your kids as you prepare for holidays!
How do you like to prepare your family for Thanksgiving?
