Our Disney trip is quickly approaching and with the excitement brings COUNTLESS questions from our 5 year old of 'HOW MUCH LONGER????' I decided that having a physical count down until Disney would make for a fun craft together and a practical way to show her how much longer we would have to wait until we arrived at the happiest place on earth.
The construction can be done with any box you have lying around the house. I used a left over cardboard box and an exacto knife to cut out the squares, circles - or if I was really a saint - Mickey Mouse heads! Once they were cut out we let S paint it red. I took white tissue paper and hot glued the paper behind each opening, allowing her to punch out each one day at a time. On the back piece of cardboard, I printed out a picture of Disney World, and all the characters so she will be able to see them peering through as we punched out our count down. We embellished with a Mickey head cut out of foam, and she practiced writing her numbers for the count down.
Mickey here we come!
