I really love a good countdown activity. I've made them for family. I do one myself. I look for new twists each year. I even started a tradition of sending one to my grandsons for the month of December so they can think of me every day as they countdown. I had this crate at a sale recently when all of a sudden this idea came to me. I pulled the crate off and saved it for me to use. It works perfectly for the twelve days of Christmas. I ordered the craft boxes on Amazon. They are 3x3 and fit perfectly. I got it ready and delivered it today so it could be started tomorrow. Jeremy will have fun seeing what's inside the box every morning.
