Learning at home ideas: Paper Counting Chain Calendar

Suitable for: Preschool, Twos
You Will Need:

Paper cut into strips, a stapler


When waiting for a special day, make a paper chain in which each ring represents a day. While waiting for the event, take off one ring each day.


You can say this rhyme together: “Taking off a ring each day is so much fun, my birthday will be here (Mom will be home from her trip, etc.), when there are none."
