Counting down to Disney is one of my FAVORITE things to do! Last year I found a cute countdown chain where it looks like Mickey’s head, pants and shoes. It was cute and relatively easy to make, however; not reusable.
So when I was planning on a Disney Craft Day, I stumbled across this AWESOME disney countdown on the Disney Parks Blog, and decided to customize it for our own trip.
Visit Disney Parks Blog to print your own countdown kit- http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2014/12/diy-create-your-own-walt-disney-world-vacation-countdown/
I printed two sets of each number so that I would be able to countdown from the double digits (and reuse it for future trips!!)
After cutting out each of the numbers, I mounted them on coordinating colored construction paper, and added some more flair (and some hidden mickeys!)
This is a fun craft that you could easily do with your kids in preparation for your disney trip!
To display it, I repurposed a piece of cork board that had broken away from it’s frame. Since it wasn’t framed, I outlined the edges of the board with Disney Princess duct tape. I mounted it to the wall near our Disney photos with 3M wall mounts. I put some finishing touches on the board by adding a few photos from past trips, as well as some pins that we’ve collected! I also added a gallon size freezer bag to the bottom to store unused numbers!
Here is the finished product-
