I am ready for Spring! I’m in serious need of a vacation! The last week of March we’ll be headed to Pine Mountain, Ga for a lite rest and relaxation. It’ll be a new adventure because we are staying in a yurt. I’m calling this trip Camping Light or Intro to Camping.
My kids are very excited, but they don’t have a great concept of time. They ask how many more days over and over again. Last year I had the idea to do a vacation count down chain! Each day we cut off a link until we get to the last one. It says “here we go”. I didn’t have a kiddo old enough to write last year so I did the majority of the work. They loved it!
This year my oldest is seven. He selected the paper colors, cut out the linkd, and even wrote the numbers. All I had to do was staple the links together. I think he was feeling a bit nostalgic for fall with his color selections!
Every day my seven year old begs to cut a link off of the chain. It is a great visual for my three year old that doesn’t understand the concept of a month. We even hung it on the fire place so it is front and center.
I am ready for our outdoor adventure!
Are you counting down to anything?
