Holly Bloggy Christmas

This year I participated in Holly Bloggy Christmas on Ms. Preppy's blog and Kindergarten Korner- a Secret Santa of sorts where you are given a fellow teacher blogger's name and send them a gift. It was encouraged that the gift be creative and created by you so I found a fun idea on Pinterest to make and send to my person, Christina Bainbridge from Mrs. Bainbridge's Class. Side note: her blog is AMAZING! There are always tons of fantastic ideas on there!

Here is the idea I found from Kiki Creates:

It's a flip calendar or countdown (depending on how you want to use it). All of the instructions can be found here. She has free printables for it made for September, October, November, and December.

I made mine a countdown but it can be modified for anything!

I also added two bird ornaments for her bird tree collection (only one is pictured, though).

And thank you to Louanne from My Kindergarten Kids for my "Joy" art!


  1. oh my gosh, i LOVE that! i had actually wanted to make a countdown for my Holly Bloggy partner but never came up with anything i loved, so i went another direction. very cute! :)

  4. Thank you SO much for my beautiful Christmas gift! :) The birds are AMAZING... so unique and pretty!!!!! And I love the countdown! Is it wrong that I'm already thinking about spring break? (I'm still on winter break until January 9th!)

    Thanks for making my Christmas extra Holly Bloggy!
