I just found this sweet idea at Everything Moms!
Her Happy Buddy is sooooo excited about preschool that she decided to start counting down NOW.
She got a simple glass jar, wrote SCHOOL DAY across the front and then let him decorate it with school themed stickers (You can find these at Target).
She then found out how many days there were until school began and let her son count out piles of ten M&Ms until they reached the number.
They dropped the little sweet treats in the jar and each day her son got 1 M&M as they slowly counted their way down to the first day!
Happy Candy Countdown-ing!
