MAD (Mindie, Adam, Alex, David) Family Fun is the result of friends and family asking "How do you find so much fun stuff to do?" So, I decided to share with everyone! There are no BIG secrets involved, I promise. I just have a knack for finding fun and now I want to share it with you!

MAD Family Fun is a place to find activities, events and ideas to have more fun with your family. Enjoy!

Count down to Christmas paper chain

Well it is December 1st. The month all children loose their minds asking for everything and the biggest question "How many more days till Christmas?????"

What I do to help our son, is make a "count down to Christmas paper chain." Every night he gets to take one link off the chain at bed time. When the last link is taken down he will know the next morning is CHRISTMAS!!!!

It is easy to make, just some construction paper and tape/glue/staples to make the links. It is a fun "craft" and a festive tradition to help the little ones (who don't necessarily understand terms like weeks) to understand how many more days till Christmas.
