Balloon Countdown

This weekend I was stalking browsing teacher blogs seeing all of the amazing things going on in classrooms across the nation.  This has come to be one of my most favorite past times and came across this wonderful idea from one of my favorite teacher bloggers The Teacher Wife!  What a wonderful and fun activity to do with the kiddos.  I raced to school this morning to get the balloons up before my kids got there.  We have 13 days today (technically 14 if you count the last day).  You should have seen their faces when they walked in.  PRICELESS!!  I was so excited to see how excited their faces were.  I chose fairly easy activities to do for the next 14 days and I am excited to try all of them.  I am so thankful for such great ideas of people out there!


  1. What a fun and exciting way to count down to the end of the year! I love your creative thoughts (or at least knowing where to find them and use them!) :)

  2. So do you pop a balloon a day and do an activity that you placed in it?

    1. YEP! Each balloon has a number that corresponds to the number of days left in school. You pop the balloon and then do that activity!
