Countdown to Fun


Pool parties, picnics, and cookouts are all fun summer activities to look forward to. If your child has a fun event coming up, start a countdown. This lesson is two-fold — it'll work on her time-telling skills, and it'll help pass the time until the event.

For example, if she has a friend's birthday party coming up in four days, ask her how long that is in days, hours, and minutes. You can even start a countdown for each of these. Her excitement will grow as each countdown winds down to her special event!
