Our family is going to Disneyland in 10 more days with our best friends. We are all so excited and talk about it all.the.time. I wanted to come up with a fun way to count down our vacation as well as give the kids an opportunity to earn some spending cash. Here is what I came up with.
I used my make the cut program to fit the Mickey faces on the page the way I wanted, then I cut it out. Unfortunately cricut is no longer compatible with Make the Cut and I am sick about all the money I put into the program. It worked for this project and now it won’t work. grrr….anyway, moving on. I cut a piece of poster board down and laid the black cardstock on top and then numbered the days left for Disneyland.
Each gift has 3 of the same thing. We open one gift a day starting with my youngest. I have three kids so they will all get to open 5 gifts each. The first present I had them open were these plastic bags for them to use as grooming kits in their suitcase. All of the other gifts are things to go in the bag like, travel size tooth brushes, soap, toothpaste, a white board to play with in the car, autograph book, flip flops for the beach etc…all practical stuff for them to bring along but in a way that is fun for them to get too.
I am so excited to go and now every time my little girl asks how many more days til we go I can send her to the fridge to count. 🙂
