Countdown to Kindergarten

 I can't believe my little girl is starting kindergarten in a few weeks *sniff sniff*
The topic is now a daily conversation so I thought it'd be fun for us to create a countdown to the big day (it'll be a huge reality check once there a just a few rings remaining)!

We printed some fun school clip art on a tabloid size paper and created paper rings using scrapbook paper. One ring for each day leading up to the first day of school.

 Each morning she'll get to tear off a ring until the big day arrives!

Let the countdown begin!

  8. This is an excellent idea as young children have little concept of time. My boy starts school this year and keeps asking how long so I shall make one. Thanks for sharing.
