Disney Week


In less than 2 months we'll be taking our kids to Disneyland for the first time.  They're so excited!  I'm so excited!  I've only been once before, just after my husband and I got engaged and he flew me down to California to visit him and his family for a weekend.

I've decided to make this week "Disney Week" and I will show you some things I've done to get ready for our trip and help build up the excitement.  

This is our countdown for the trip.

Pin It

I decided against using numbers, since Asher is just 3 and won't quite get the "counting down"  by actual numbers.  Every day until we leave we'll take one magnet off. 

These glass magnets were made the same way as these flat marbles  and I used these pretty yellow and coral shades of cardstock cut in .65 inch circles.

The letters are done in vinyl and I set it up in a picture easel.  

Be sure to come back every day this week to see the rest of the projects!  And if you've got any Disney tips or crafts you've done, be sure to let me know, I'd love to come see!
