Over the last two years one of our favorite activities is to countdown to Christmas with books! This is a simple and fun activity to do. Plus takes almost no time to put together at all. There are so many great Christmas books out there to read. Kids of all ages love Christmas books. My girls love opening the books each day to see what we will be reading.

What do I do when I don’t have 25 books?

One of the questions I get asked often is “What do I do when I don’t have 25 books?”. Here is my answer and what I did when I started out. I would get books from the library. I would wrap those first and keep a list of when they were due back. My first 10 books always came from the library. It was simple and easy and just returned them after we read them. I would renew books when needed as well.

Use the Nativity theme to count down with books. This is a very fun one. Even if you don’t use the books you can write scriptures on the back of the cards and have kids look them up and read scriptures down to Christmas. It is a great way to make sure you have something fun to do that centers around the Nativity Story. This set matches up with the Nativity Pack.
