Mickey Countdown Chain

Countdown to Mickey!!

Disneyland or Disney World is like hitting the lottery for most kids.

There are two camps of parents when it comes to the subject however; the ones that hype it up and count it down, and the ones that spring it on them the morning of as a surprise.

I will probably do both at different times, but this is a fun idea for the hype it up and count it down parents.

 Cute right!?

And if you want to find some ways to get some extra money for your trip, check out my series going on this month!!

This chain was super easy to make so you can make it however long you need. There were Mickey ‘face’ pieces and Mickey ‘shorts’ pieces, both are super simple to make,

I cut one inch strips of black and red card stock, the number of pieces equals the number of days that are going to be counted down.

I then cut circles out of black card stock, bent the side and then attached them to the middle of the black strip.

Then I cut some white ovals and attached those to the center of the red strips.

Then all you have to do is get your paper chain on, come on, you know we have all made hundreds of these in our time!

Yay for Mickey and Disney!! I would have made it Minnie if I had the  paper for it, maybe I still will just because it would be fun for me Avery would like it…ohhh or you could alternate Mickey and Minnie faces!!

Happy Countdown!!

What is your favorite thing to do at Disney?
