Here is my next homemade gift...unwrapped. We have been saving and saving for years to be able to take our kids to Disneyland...and this year it is going to happen :) For Christmas we surprised our kids with a trip to Disney World. We did a little treasure hunt around the house. At each stop was a present leading up to the big reveal. We had Disney stuffed animals, Disney movies, this count-down, airplane activity bags, and finally luggage with the tickets inside. It was SO EXCITING!
This count-down has been a great visual reminder of how many days we have left until the big day. I just found some cute Disney scrapbook paper and mounted it on black and red card stock. The numbers are stickers with a transparent background. I then punched two holes in the top of each circle and strung them onto some tulle. I made a little black Mickey head and glued it to a paper clip as the marker. Each day we move the little Mickey closer and closer to #1...I just wish that he would move a little faster!
