There is no denying the magic of Christmas for little ones. Excitement for the Christmas countdown builds all around from the adverts and programmes on TV to the displays in our towns and shop windows. How many times do you get asked “when will it be Christmas” in the lead up to the big day? With 6 children it is a frequently asked question in our house.
When does your Christmas countdown begin?
The start of the advent calendars marks the beginning of the grand Christmas countdown for us, but there is always a little cheating when someone’s day is mysteriously opened incorrectly and the chocolate missing! The clever folk at Prezzybox have the perfect solution. A sensibly priced Santa Christmas Countdown Blackboard to manually count down the days starting whenever you choose.
Currently reduced to just £7.95 from Prezzybox.
Features 3D Santa and stylish red border.
Comes complete with string and chalk.
Attractive red ribbon for hanging.
What we thought:
We love the Santa Christmas Countdown blackboard. I may use ours in the house in place of advent calendars this year and put the money saved towards a big box of chocolates for my children to have one a day. However I also like the idea of hanging it in the games room or train tunnel for our holiday guests, then asking the children to change the number in return for a chocolate on the train ride each evening. I’m so taken with the idea I may just order another. There is even space to write the odd present hint or a reminder of timings for our Christmas train. It is so festive and jolly looking it will double as a Christmas decoration too.
