This is a fun, simple advent calendar made with construction paper, glue and pom poms. Simply trace both hands of each family member on green construction paper, cut them out and place them from smallest to largest in a Christmas tree shape on another piece of construction paper or posterboard. Draw and number 25 circles (I traced the cap from a soda bottle). Glue a pom pom to one circle each day from Dec. 1 until Christmas Day to decorate the tree!
