The Christmas Countdown Blocks is a fun and free craft project that you can assemble in very little time at very little cost.  This is a great way to countdown the days until Christmas! Your little ones will enjoy turning the blocks and "seeing" how many days left until Christmas Day.  These blocks are fun to make for any holiday and could be adapted for any type of countdown such as: Football season, New Year's, Easter, birthdays, due dates or special religious days.  They could even be made and given as a thoughtful gift.

block 2

2.Apply Mod Podge to blocks when paint is dry and glue scrapbook squares. 

3. I used Vinyl for the numbers and lettering but you can use stickers or die cuts or just print the number on the scrapbook paper- whatever works best for you.

These are the numbers you'll need~0,0,1,1,2,2,3,4,5,6,7,&8{ make sure the 6 can double as a 9 if it's turned upside down}.

On the first block you use ~0,1,2,3,4,5. On the second block~6{doubles as 9},7,8,0,1,2.
