Made this for the kids to countdown until Daddy comes home I numbered the rings to correspond with the calendar, and help me keep up with which days have been torn off. Each day they get to tear a ring off until the last one is when Daddy is home!
Countdown idea...a frame without glass (you can use the glass and use a dry erase marker instead), scrapbook paper and a calendar. Hang it up and use a marker to cross out the days as they go. This was made for a friend of mine whose husband was at the State Police Academy...This has the 6 months he will be there.
SO sweet for families dealing with deployment -- Daddy Kisses. Every night we eat a kiss and when they are all gone it is time for Daddy to come home! A great way to help small children visualize the length of time until Mommy or Daddy comes home.
