Waiting for a Disney vacation to arrive is never easy. The days seem to pass so slowly. My kids love to ask the question, "Is it time for us to go yet?" Help make the countdown fun for everyone with this simple Disney Vacation Countdown Craft. It will add some Disney magic to your home and make the waiting to depart a part of the adventure!
You only need a few basic art supplies to make your own Disney Vacation Countdown craft. You will need:
Start by cutting out the black paper Mickey Mouse head silhouettes. You will need one, 1 inch circle and two, 3/4 inch circles for each day of your Disney vacation countdown. I suggest starting at least two weeks before your trip begins. So, cut enough to make 14 Mickey Mouse sticks or more if you want to add more days to the countdown.
Then, add a small glue spot to the center of the top of the craft stick between the Mickey ears. Press the large circle onto the glue and secure it in place.
This finishes off the Mickey face. It is so quick and easy! You can get them all done in a matter of minutes.
Now it's time to add the activity suggestions to the sticks. I used a black Sharpie marker.
They should all be Disney related, because it is a Disney Vacation Countdown Craft. Here are 20 ideas on what you could put on your sticks. You can use these activities or make up your own that work for your family.
Place your finished Mickey Mouse countdown activity sticks in a jar. I decorated my mason jar so it felt a little bit festive. You could paint the glass, wrap it with Disney washi tape, cover the jar with Disney scrapbook paper or tie it up with a cute ribbon. The kids can even help!
I hope these active and fun Disney activities will help make the days before your Disney vacation magical and memorable!
