Countdown to Disney World--30 days

Last time we went to Disney World, we did different activities everyday to help us countdown the last 30 days....we had so much fun, that we decided it had to be a new tradition.  I wanted to share our activities that we did as we prepared for our trip.

30 Days to go...Make a paper chain countdown 
I cut strips of Red, Yellow, Black and White card stock.  I wanted to give it a Mickey feel, so I added black circle to the black cardstock to resemble Mickey ears.  Add white dots to the red to look like buttons on Mickey's pants and repeated the pattern.  Inside each ring is a label with the activity for the day.

We also gathered up most of our Disney Characters and let them line the hearth...which didn't last long because my 3 year old wanted to play with them all and SHE DID NOT want them to stay there....they needed to be in her room :)  She is a Disney ADDICT at 3!

29 Days to Go:
Watch Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade on YouTube.
