Counting Down

My family and I just returned from a trip to the happiest place on earth (and I want to go back!)

For the months leading up to our trip we planned and planned….and counted down!  When we got down to about two weeks before the trip, my son and I wanted to make a countdown calendar.  We happened to be at Home Depot getting some paint samples (I’m currently trying to decide on a new color for our upstairs) when we spotted these:


…perfect for a countdown calendar!  I chose a variety of colors, punched the holes and tied them together with some tiny ribbon I had on hand.  The kids tore off one mickey mouse for each day.

We put the black Mickey ears at the top for the last day.  The kids loved it and it was a simple and very visual way to help us count down to our trip!
