So the big Christmas gift to our kids this year was our trip to WDW that we will embark on later this month. Now that the Mouse is out of the bag, we can talk openly about it and let the kids help make plans.
In that spirit, we constructed a countdown calendar, and today is the first day of the countdown. Each child got to design 8 pockets on the calendar with scrapbooking materials we have collected over the years, and the pocket inserts show the number of days until we leave. Each of the inserts will have a Disney-related activity or fact for the kids, or it will reveal details of the trip that we have not told them yet. I have attached a photo of the calendar.
We only have a few ideas for the countdown activities so far, so if anyone has any good ideas, I’m all ears! Things are sure to get exciting over the next few weeks.
