We've all seen the paper chains with the cute little Santas and poems where children can countdown the days until Christmas by removing a link each day. I liked the idea, but wanted to focus on the real significance of Christmas, so I modified it. I put the following poem on large yellow stars. (I could only cut one yellow star from a piece of construction paper. I ran the poem through the photocopier on smaller stars and glued it to the yellow stars that I precut for younger children and let the older ones cut their own.) The kids then used the precut red and green paper strips to make a chain.
