Let The Count Down Begin....

(Actually it's less than 14 days now - We start August 29)


We made this craft last year as well and the kids loved it (a new tradition has begun).

To make this calendar, you will need:

construction paper
the printables found here and here
crayons or water color paints
glitter
glue
beads
stickers
buttons
ribbon
pom poms
and various other odds and ends


First, The boys colored and painted the "back to school" printables




Then we cut them out and glued them to some black construction paper and added some red around the edges to frame it and give it some pizazz.


Next, we got out some glitter and glue and added some sparkle to our numbers.



I cut different shades of construction paper in half and glued the numbers to the paper.


Then the real fun began....I threw a bunch of art supplies on the table (stickers, pom poms, buttons, etc.) and let kids decorate the papers.







Use a hole punch to punch holes in the bottom of the picture and the top of the number pages

Next, string some cute ribbon through the holes



Tie it in a bow


And Wahlah....

A cute way to count down those days til freedom school begins.
