Days left until...

 We've got just over a month until the kids start school the end of August. James is talking about it more and more and getting excited about starting Kindergarten. He keeps asking me, "how many days until I start Kindergarten mama?". I've also heard him ask Madeline a few times, "Sissy, tell me again what Kindergarten is like...". It's cute, she's really hyping it up to him and talking about how fun school is. I thought it would be fun to do a 1 month countdown until the first day of school so we made these today!

All I did was spend a few dollars at the Dollar Tree store picking up stickers, construction paper and school decor. They have a lot of cute stuff their for teachers to decorate their classrooms. 

 We just used a paper plate for the sign and stapled everything together. The kids enjoyed decorating them with stickers and picking out colors for their countdown links. I just made 3 rows of 10 links, each day they can cut one off from the bottom.

They were happy with how they turned out. :) And already counting...

That is such a great idea! I am going to have to steal this and make some for the boys.

What a fun idea! This would work great for our boys; 1st counting down to our holiday to Denmark and then counting down 'till when school starts.

Awesome idea! P starts real school soon too. Mommy finds it nerve-wracking! This is a way for us to anticipate the big day!
