27 Days Left!

Are you kidding me?  I'm freaking out just a little right now because I just did my countdown to the last day of school and we only have 27 days left!  How is this even possible?  I still have so many things I want to do with my kiddos and now I don't know how I'll have time.  I just ordered our caterpillars to make sure that they arrive in enough time to watch the metamorphosis.
I normally do some kind of countdown activity with my kiddos once we get to 20 days left.  I found this cool idea from Jackie at Mrs. Gray's Pond on Pinterest.  (It's okay to roll your eyes every time I mention the P word- my husband always does! ha)  You put a fun activity in each balloon and then pop one each day for the last 20 days of school.  What's more fun than busting balloons?

I think I'm going to try it with my kids this year.  I'm thinking about making it a behavior incentive since it seems like spring fever is in full force already.   Now I just have to come up with my 20 awesome ideas.  Anyone want to give me some recommendations?  Do you have any other cool end of the year traditions?Pin It


  1. I have seen that balloon idea on Pinterest too! It sounds like a lot of fun!

  2. Hey this is Jackie! Thank you for the great comments and the reference to my blog, BUT...I am not able to get to my blog any longer to update my great kindergarten year because our district changed email servers and my blog was run through the old account that is "no longer active" makes me want to cry when I see people commenting on my stuff...once school is over I will be creating a new blog! :-/
