Last week I came across this easy and ingenious take on the standard kid's craft of a paper chain to count down the days till Christmas at Make and Takes. Mine doesn't look as good because I cut my strips of paper a bit too wide. But this was such a cute and easy project that I think will become a tradition in our home. The only problem is that I like it too much to want to take any of the paper chain links off- hehe!
My son's birthday is coming up soon. He is extremely excited to turn 3! He loves all things Toy Story and that will be the theme of his party this year. So I made him a paper chain advent to count down the days until his birthday, and I added a sticker of Woody (his fave) to make it more fun for him. To get him even more excited and involved, I let him colour each of the paper strips with his crayons. He loves tearing off another link each day and finds it hard to do only one per day:) I'm glad I took the few minutes to make this for him. He has really loved it!
