Craft idea with a Christmas countdown

A few days ago I made a Santa Claus lamp with a countdown and then some of you asked if I could make the same thing with a Christ child 😉 So I went straight to it and here is the Christ child lamp! Simply turn the dial every day and the countdown to Christmas starts backwards. It’s very easy to make crafts with my template. For kindergartens and the like, the file also contains a simplified coloring version in which the individual parts do not have to be glued together. You can stick a cardboard bowl on the back or leave it out and simply attach a mini string of lights with a flat switch along the edge. You can hang the lamp on the front door as a welcome sign or simply use it as a cute wall decoration.
