To my surprise, even though the treats were a big hit everyday after preschool I was still being asked, Mom is today Christmas? hmmmm.....It totally escaped my mind somehow that Pre-schoolers have a different concept of time than we do. They live in Today world! They don't understand..in a couple of weeks, in 20 days or next week..if they don't see it, touch it, feel it...it pretty much doesn't exist, or at least not the same way it exists for Us.
So I came up with the same concept but a different approach...I reused an old tool box and filled it up with little bags, with treats as well...but this time, we take a bag, put it away and we count how many days are left. When all the bags are gone...It's Christmas Eve!!! Success!!! It worked! and....it looks quite cute too I think! Let the Christmas Countdown begin!
