Back to School Count Down

My latest addition of Family Fun gave me a great idea for counting down the days until school. Since my son is about to start Kindergarten, I decided to try this one out. I knew he'd love to add the school supplies to his new backpack for school. The Family Fun idea is at this link; Count the Days. I changed up the tube idea and used what I had around the house. I had old mailbox sticky numbers (unused) and decorated paper lunch sacks with a few school related scrapbook items I had around. Now I can't wait for Hayden to see what awaits him each day.

So what is inside these bags?

Bag 7: A NASA patch and a coupon good for a new backpack and a promise that I will sew on the patch. The significance of the patch is that I bought it for him while I visited the Johnson Space Center over the summer and his new school is a NASA Explorer School!
Bag 6: crayons

Bag 5: scissors
Bag 4: watercolor sets
Bag 3: markers

Bag 2: glue sticks and a glue bottle
Bag 1: Pencils and a special note from mom and dad

In a few of the bags, I added two of the items so that I could start a basket at home with the same school supplies available for homework or projects. Hayden will know right where to look for the supplies to complete his work.
