craftivity / countdown chains






yesterday we spent the afternoon making countdown chains for the month of august.  i always have plenty of scraps; so i was thrilled they were used for a good cause. seven year olds are easily enthused (and don't you love seeing olivia's sweet handwriting)! each link has a favorite activity, outing, or craft labeled on the inside to ensure we soak up every last bit of summer. cousin olivia is counting down til school starts and benji is counting down til his 3rd birthday. i can hardly believe it's almost august already! we are loving all of the family events, lazy afternoons, outdoor barbecues and parties we've packed in thus far. happy end of summer, everyone.

p.s. stay tuned for two major recommendations from yours truly.

This is great! I've been looking for a crafty project for my 9 year old and her friends. Perfect way to motivate (not that little kids need much motivation). :)

Aww I love the chain reading "Go to Belda Bear" haha. Hope you all have a great weekend and get to take off some of those chains!

Great idea.

So glad you didn't correct the spelling. Childrens spelling errors are the best.

That is adorable! I love the spelling errors too! I love the simplicity of their activities - it doesn't have to be a day-long event to be fun. That's what's so great about kids.
