For today’s Pinterest project, Will and I created a simple countdown to our beach trip chain. We always love counting down to special events and holidays, so I did some searching on Pinterest for a beach countdown chain. I found one and modified it to fit my artistic abilities (which are greatly lacking, ha!). Plus, I did the prep work during nap time and didn’t want to spend tons of time on it…too much else to get done during my time of “peace and quiet,” as Will calls it.
I cut out strips of blue construction paper for the actual chains and created some orange starfish, yellow seashells, and white sand dollars. These were done freehand, so don’t look too close! They aren’t that good, but I figured Will and Harper would appreciate it!
When Will woke up from his nap, he helped me attach the chain and strategically place the shells and stars in a pattern.
Waiting for instructions from mommy.
He handed me the blue strips and I stapled them together.
He selected the shells to go on each chain and I stapled them on.
Since I didn’t want to make a huge chain, we started the chain countdown 12 days before we headed to the beach.
Will displaying our masterpiece!
What types of countdowns do you do with your kiddos?
