Christmas Themed Activities to Pass Time and Count Days

Welcome! New to ABC and 123? Please check out our FAQ in the sidebar.

I've been on the look out for more holiday themed project to do with the kids. Specifically, I wanted to find a final product that would fit on the empty, narrow shelves at the top of our corner tv stand. On my search, as well as in our submissions, I found more Christmas ideas that I wanted to sqeeze into a last minute post.

Recycle Christmas Cards to make memory games and puzzles using the tip from Nurture Store.

Everday Teaching has put together a month's worth of activities for December. Click on the hidden numbers in their calendar to find projects and more.

Mommy's Little Helper made a sweet torn paper tree out of fun scrapbook papers.

Simple Christmas Tree Chains, like this one from Mommy's Little Helper, are a favorite. They can be easily adapted to match your tree decorating theme.
Mom Endeavors created a muffin tin advent calendar. A great learning activity would be to put an academic or thematic question under each number to practice problem solving. Another classroom variation would be to have a writing promppt for each day. Love it!


  1. Thank you for more Christmas goodness. It's always fun to be inspired by creative ideas.

  2. Thanks so much for the muffin tin feature! :)
