Melissa & Doug Countdown to Christmas – WOODEN ADVENT CALENDAR
Let the countdown to Christmas begin!!
Add some kid-friendly holiday cheer and a charming yuletide ritual to your home with this Wooden Advent Calendar holiday tree! The set includes 24 unique magnetic ornaments plus a shining star for Christmas day. All fits neatly in the attached box at the base of the tree. Kids can pick a favorite design to place on the tree each day, following the numbered outlines to fill the tree right up to Christmas. They’ll also love to switch, move, and rearrange the pieces to customize their very own tree countless times!
Decorating this little tree will not only become a highly anticipated annual tradition, it can also be a great way to help promote as well as reinforce many developmental skills as children grow from year to year. Use the numbers on the tree to help young children with number recognition and to learn to count both forwards and backwards; as they get older, ask children to add the numbers in a row. Play games with the ornaments to help develop color recognition and also memory skills.
