Enjoy the Magic of a Santa’s Beard Christmas Countdown: A Festive Printable Calendar for Kids
The highlight of this festive countdown is the daily activity of adding a cotton ball or white pom poms to Santa’s beard. Starting from December 1st, children can eagerly watch as Santa’s beard becomes fuller and fuller with each passing day!
This simple yet engaging Santa craft not only helps children practice counting, and number recognition but it also helps them to understand about the passing of time, a tricky yet important skill!
This easy Christmas craft is also the perfect way to develop kids hand-eye co-ordination and fine motor skills too as they glue on a cotton ball each day. If you want to stretch these skills further it’s a great idea to challenge kids to use chop sticks or tweezers instead of their hands!
This fun Santa craft is a wonderful way to incorporate a daily moment of joy and connection as a family during the busy holiday season. As Santa’s beard grows day by day, so will the excitement in your home!
Our Santa Claus printable advent calendars will help you enjoy a season filled with joy, creativity and the warmth and cosiness of shared family traditions.
Two Fun Options: Color or Black-and-White
Our Santa Beard Christmas Countdown comes in two enchanting versions – one that is already decorated with vibrant colors (x2 multicultural skin tones) and one in black-and-white ready to be decorated by the artistic hands of your little ones. It’s perfect for kids who love to color and want to add their own personal touch creating their own diy countdown.
The choice is yours! Kids can enjoy getting straight stuck to glue cotton balls to the pre-colored version or spend a lot of time letting their creativity run wild coloring and decorating the black and white version leading up to Christmas.
Celebrating Diversity: Two Multicultural Skin Tones
To make this holiday experience even more special, our pre-colored Santa Beard Countdown Printable features the big guy in not one but two multicultural skin tones. Kids can choose which one they like or use both.
Here on Kids Craft Room we strongly believe in embracing diversity and ensuring that every child can see themselves reflected in the holiday festivities. Our printable Santa Advent Calendar is designed to bring joy to all!

Cotton Ball Fun: Crafting Santa’s Beard from December 1st to Christmas Day
Kids can have so much fun growing Santa’s beard. All you need is some white paper or white card stock, a glue stick and some cotton balls.
Every day, kids glue a cotton ball on to Santa’s numbered chin, creating a fluffy white beard. They’ll love watching Santa’s beard grow fluffier and fluffier each day! So by the time Christmas Day arrives he’ll have a majestic full beard that he’ll be so proud of!
Kids will love this hands-on creative way of counting down each day of December until Christmas morning.
And who says Santa’s beard has to be white? We love embracing creativity here on Kids Craft Room so we totally believe that kids don’t have to just use white cotton balls! They could add stickers, bio-glitter, colored pom poms or anything else that makes them happy!
This fun Christmas countdown is a great way to keep kids engaged and excited this Christmas season.
