Cut out paper strips. I used our paper cutter and cut 1-inch strips across the short edge of the paper.

Have your child make a loop with the paper and use glue or a stapler to connect it together. My kids LOVED using the stapler, but did need a little help at times to get it pushed down all the way.  Make a loop for each day until school starts. We are going to start counting down in August, so we made 16 loops.

On the last loop make a teardrop shape instead of a loop and connect it to the school bus. Now the craft is ready! We hope you have fun counting down until school starts.
