1. Chalk it Up with Library Cards: An ordinary chalkboard becomes a scholastic countdown by adding a few vintage library pockets. Making your own is so easy.
my library cards on white cardstock. Write daily challenges, chores or activities on each card.
2. Lunch Sack Surprise: Getting new school supplies is always a treat! Instead of turning supplies over to your kids in one lump sum, use lunch sacks to create a school-lunch surprise.
my lunch sack tags, a stapler and school supplies for each bag. Print and cut my lunch sack tags onto cardstock. Place a supply or treat in each sack and fold down top. Use a stapler to secure tag.
3. Clip It Up Countdown: A basic clipboard is easily transformed into a spiffy countertop countdown.
my clipboard countdown (printed on white paper and cut to size), ribbon and stickers as desired. Once assembled, have your children change out the sheets each day until school arrives.
5. Print and Color: This free printable from Alphamom.com is so user friendly. They have 4 different countdown options, so you're sure to find one that fits your print and use needs. I love the coloring book option that allows kids to customize their own countdown.
