I love Christmas! Decorating,  food,  family, it’s the most  wonderful time of the year. However, sometimes it can feel overwhelming. I started using a Christmas Planner to help make the most of the season.

What a difference it makes! Instead of forgetting things or feeling overwhelmed, I just write it down and get to what I can. I want that for your family to! Scroll down and get your free Holiday Planner (PDF).

Christmas Countdown Printable

Christmas Countdown Free Printable Calender

December’s  bucket list is a little different than the rest of the months. Starting December 1st, we will be doing a Christmas Countdown. To jumpstart the countdown, I made Libby a Toddler Christmas Box. In addition to the Toddler Box, I created this Christmas Countdown Printable to fill in crafts, things to make and places to go. I tried to coordinate it around our December schedule.

Use this printable to plan some fun for your family this Christmas!
