Materials Needed for the Spring Countdown Craft
How to Make the Spring Countdown Craft
- Print out the sheets and cut out the cloud and rain drop paper chains.
- Tape one of the rain drop strips together to make a ring.
- Place another strip of paper through the ring and tape it to make another ring.
- Continue taping strips of paper to make your paper chain.
- Once your paper chain is complete, attach it to the back of your cloud with a piece of tape.
- Tape it to your wall and tear off one chain each day until the first day of spring!
Money and Time Saving Tip:
We signed up for the HP Instant Ink program over a year ago and absolutely love it! They offer several different plans (such as $4.99 for 100 pages a month) and will automatically send you new cartridges before you even need them.
We are now saving SO MUCH money (and time) on ink and I don’t feel guilty about printing out new printables and playdough mats each day. If you want to check it out, ordering through our link here will give you 1 free month.
You can use just about any HP printer but we’ve been using this compact one and absolutely love it! The color is gorgeous and matches my decor (we’ll call that a win!) and the size is smaller than any printer I’ve ever owned which is great for small spaces (or living room/dining room offices).
Between HP Instant Ink and our compact printer, my printing life truly has become so much easier to print all these fun playdough mats and activity sheets we’ve been making lately.
