I won't start this post by saying, "I can't believe school starts one week from tomorrow for us!" but I will say this summer is a bit of a blur! So many great memories, carefree days, and fun times, but now it's time to move on to a new chapter- SCHOOL TIME!
I shared my back to school countdown last year. But I wanted to update the look a bit, and add some new activities. My boys ALWAYS have the first day jitters, so I like to make the days up to the first day as fun and exciting as possible, and a countdown is the perfect way to do it.
You can click on the link above for more tips on making the countdown calendar, but basically I just dress up a toilet paper roll, and then put a little treat and activity inside the roll each day. We countdown the week before school, so like I said we'll be starting tomorrow!
The link above also has a list of activities we do in our countdown. This year I'm adding a few new ones.
Back to school Mad Libs (tune in tomorrow for some great links on that)
Make a back to school Rainbow Loom bracelet
Take a quiz about last year's school year
You can do anything you'd like for your countdown. Personalize it for your kids, and make it fun. That first day can be a bit nerve-racking and overwhelming.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you found a little something worth your time.
