Countdown to Summer 2012!



Are your kiddos already out of school for summer?  
{Lucky you!}
Or maybe they're getting out next week?

My boys don't get out until late June.
It seems long now, but I do loooove those few weeks in late August when most kids are back in school and all of our favorite San Diego places aren't so crowded 
{my boys start back after Labor Day}.

So, to keep the momentum going these last few weeks {Mama included, because with a brand new baby, I'd love to just stay home in my pjs and not have to hustle four boys out the door in the morning!} I made this easy little Countdown to Summer using scraps of paper and ribbon I had in my Craft Corner.  Every day until summer vacation, we'll pull down a number.  I think the numbers came out so cute and fun that I'll save them for another fun summer project I'm working on :)

I still had the honeycomb and lantern decorations up from Jake's Dinosaur Birthday Party {that I STILL need to blog about!} and I thought they looked cute so I just left them.

I love this chalkboard and have used it for Valentine's Day, a photo display for Jake's birthday, hanging artwork that the boys do at school, and more, but it's driving me crazy that I can't get the writing off from previous uses.  Anyone have tips?


Come on Summer... we can't wait!!!



Have a great Memorial Day weekend!  xoxo

Great countdown! Your boys get out at same time as my kids ( and me- I'm a teacher!). What a great way to review counting and counting backwards with your kids. And they'd never know there was learning hidden in all the fun!

LOVE all your ideas girl!! Seems like we were at the same MOPS table IONS ago! I love the sign and now i am curious about what you have it attached to? Is that a homemade chalkboard? If so you got a post for how you made that too?

Tina said...

It you have tried and wiped everything across it and it still doesn't work. We sale chalkboard paint in both paintable/tintable and spray can at my work...The Home Depot.

adorable. My son doesn't get out till the end of June too. These last few weeks are always the hardest. This would be perfect to make things easier. Great job. It would be awesome if you shared this with my readers at Show Off Mondays on Kampen Lane.
