Santa’s Beard Countdown to Christmas {Freebie!!}

Are your students asking you "how many days until Christmas?" every 3.7 seconds? Mine sure are! I saw a cute countdown to Christmas on Pinterest, but wanted to simplify it for my classroom… so I made a quick printable! 

After coloring, cutting, and gluing Santa, your students can begin tracking the days until Christmas. Just have your students slice off one piece of beard until Christmas arrives! Here are some of my students’ masterpieces!
