Counting Down Till We Are Back To School

from: Trisha Novotny

24/7 MOMS

ABC Count Down Count down the days till school by celebrating a letter of the day activity. Such as A = Apples so make a apple recipe or B= Bowling so take the kids bowling the daily ideas can be simple or extravagant you can also do double things such as C = Cookies and Cribbage.

Check out Valerie White our Celebration junkie from Gig Harbor Scrapper blog's ABC Countdown she blogs about it daily

12 Days Of Back To School fun - Countdown the last 12 days of Summer with a fun activity countdown. Ask your kids what things they still would like to do prior to going back to school. Them create a schedule to do one of them each day and use them to do a 12 days of Back To School count down.

( I found a table top pocket chart at Target in the dollar spot section , then used envelopes I found at the Dollar Tree in their School supply section as well as crayon cut outs from Target dollar spot to write the activity on)
