Disney Mason Jar Countdown

I'm excited to start of the Month of Disney Series Today! You can find more about the series Here.

We have a Disneyland trip planned later this year and I wanted a fun way for us to countdown. You can make your countdown for however many days you want. I chose to do a 20-day countdown!

You will need:

-Mason Jar & ring
-Red, Black and yellow paint
-Primer (I used gray)
-Paint brush
-Circle sponge- similar here.
-Popsicle sticks

1. Prime your mason jar. I used gray primer. Let dry completely.
2. Paint your mason jar red and the ring yellow. This may take a few coats but allow to dry between each coat.

3. Paint polka dots onto the mason jar with your sponge.

4. Paint ears on each of the polka dots! I used a smaller circle for the ears. I didn't have a sponge so I used a pen cap. get creative if you don't have all the supplies! ;)

5. Paint Mickey mouse onto your popsicle sticks. We used 20 for a 20-day countdown but you can do as many as you like! 

Here is our list of activities to countdown the days to our Disneyland trip:
(This is just a list I put together but you can surely add more to it!)

Draw Mickey and Minnie Mouse
Learn the words to Mickey Mouse Club song!
Listen to Disney Music and dance!

I like this idea of this simple popsicle stick count-down, cause it can be adapted to any big reward, family trip, or holiday!
