End of School Countdown

Are you starting to look forward to summer break? How about the kids? My son has been asking “how many more days of school?” since the end of spring break. For a while my answer was just “Ummm… a lot…” but finally I decided it would probably just be easier, (and more fun for him) if he had a countdown.

As an added bonus, it gave me something to do with some of the 5 billion scrapbook paper scraps I have because I refuse to throw them away. J

I didn’t bother to get super creative, since they are all going to be thrown away. It’s what I like to call semi-lazy parenting. I mean, hey, at least I was making the countdown in the first place.

Then I taped the books in a stack, starting with “The Last Day of School” sitting on the desk,

Each book was only taped on the top and slightly overlapped the book under it.
