Last year I made a paper chain with events to do with the kiddo each day as a count down to Solstice. This year I made stockings. Or am making, they aren't quite done yet.
I came across a wonderful pattern on the Martha Stewart website, I believe. I lost the link for it. But it was a how to on making mini stockings from paper. And I thought it would be adorable to have a bunch of little stockings strung across my wall for my calendar this year.
Unfortunately, my wall space is odd and I have to search to see where I'm going to put them up. I don't have a long stretch of wall in this apartment. My hallway is full of closet doors. I could put them high up, but I want the young one to be able to reach them himself. I think there might be a spot in the kitchen/dining room.
The green slips are going to be what the activities are written on. I'm going to put a number on each heel or toe and add a little loop to hang them from. Then I will put them up with a ribbon/string running between them.
Are you counting down the days?
