Countdown bags are a fun way to count the days until the big guy slides down the chimney. My kids love it when we do these. I fill the bags with inexpensive dollar store goodies, as well as activity ideas. Then I seal them with these cute number tags. They make the days leading up to Christmas really fun and memorable.

Do you ever not do a tradition and everyone notices? Like, everyone. Last year, I was that mom, y'all. I didn't do our usual paper bag countdown to Christmas that I had done in years prior. These were never anything fancy...most of the time they were filled with fun activity ideas like baking cookies or reading a Christmas story. But it was wailing and gnashing of teeth...I had some sad people on my hands. And I really missed the bags, too...all of the little activity ideas and small treats that they brought (in a more organized manner than I usually do). So, this year...the bags are back, baby! I thought it would be fun to dress them up with cute little number tags.

I used these red lunch bags that I bought here on Amazon (they're only in sets of 12, so grab two sets to have enough. I also grabbed these cute miniature clothespins here on Amazon, as well.

If you'd rather secure them a bit "tighter" (for lookie-loos), you can hole-punch them and secure them with Baker's Twine. Grab a mini hole punch here and Baker's Twine here

 These are so fun and always bring a smile to our faces. They don't have to be elaborate.
Just print, cut, and fold each number tag in half. Then secure on top.

  3. These little rituals are the best! I always do some kind of a Christmas countdown. I am totally stealing your idea and I will bring my lunch to the office in these paper bags the whole December! Furthermore, I can safely put my lunch on any furniture as it is in a package!
