Recharge for Spring Day 1: Start a Countdown

Thanks for joining the challenge!  Are you ready to recharge?

With snow still on the ground for many of us it may be hard to remember that spring is just 4 weeks away.  So your activity for February 28 is:
Start a Spring Countdown!

Place a 4 week calendar in a prominent place - near the front door, on the fridge, next to the computer - then check off each day until spring!  Seeing March 20th getting closer and closer will help you leave the winter blues behind.

Get creative!

  • Use fun stickers to mark each day
  • Enlist the kids' help in making your calendar
  • Make a paper chain, creating a new link everyday, then tape it to the ceiling and watch it get closer to the ground as winter fades

Come back here and tell us how YOU will be marking off the days until spring!

 My DD has been very curious about when Spring will get here. I think I'll buy some construction paper and make a chain with her. Instead of doing one every day, I think I'll put them all together now and we can take one off every day and watch the chain shrink as we get closer!
