To help with the count down awe got some paper, scissors, stapler and marker out of the craft bin.
We cut the paper into one inch strips. (Great cutting practice for preschool kids!)
The we wrote a number on each one. As of today there are 38 days till valentines day so that's the number we I used. My daughter, with some help, wrote the numbers 1-10, I did the rest.
Then we carefully staples all the strips together into a chain. We will remove one each day and can look at the number to know how many days left until Valentines day.
