12 Days of Christmas Countdown

Here is the bonus project for the month of November on Craft Project Central.  This is a wonderful project by Melissa!

Christmas is just around the corner!  Get the little ones excited with a tree filled with candy and treats!  Watch their excitement as they countdown the 12 Days of Christmas on their way to December 25th!  Why not mix things up and add holiday activities with the treats?  Spending the holidays through the eyes of the kids will bring wonderful memories for everyone to cherish!  This project is also a fun holiday class project!
