Our Disney Vacation countdown is ON and I wanted to share some fun and easy DIY craft ideas that you can do with your kids to make the countdown FUN and interactive!! I made three simple countdown crafts that all cost very little money - and the free printable for the Disney Vacation countdown frame is at the bottom of the post!
The first craft is a printable piece of paper that I put inside a Dollar Tree frame and this craft cost me $1 total!! The dry erase marker is from the Target Dollar Spot and we already had that on hand! Just print off the free countdown printable below, put it in a frame, and use a dry erase marker on the glass of the frame. It wipes right off and is a great way to keep track of your countdown... even if you are 365 days away!
The second craft is a paper construction paper chain that was FREE, because we already had the construction paper on hand! You can find construction paper cheaply at the Dollar Tree or at Target! We made a Mickey chain, but how could would it be to do a "Disneybound" chain and make the colors for different princesses or other characters?? The possibilities are endless! You could do to shades of purple and yellow for Rapunzel - red, green, and purple for Ariel with a tail - yellow, blue, and white or brown for Belle, etc...
The third countdown idea is a memory board which would be great for families that have been on trips to Walt Disney World or a Disney vacation before! You can cover each number on the board as your are counting down with memories from previous trip, and each day get to relive on of your favorite Disney memories! My girls especially loved this one!
