Countdown Jar

Saturday, November 17, 2012

One thing I wanted to be able to do for the boys is to have a visual for them to see that Daddy will be coming home soon.  So we have a Countdown Jar. Actually, it is a clear water bottle filled with M&Ms.

I filled it up with 300 M&Ms first (deployment orders said 276 days so I added a few extra).  It only filled the bottle half way.  Plus they are M&Ms. So I decided to go ahead and fill the bottle. That way if the boys decided they all want to take an M&M each day, they can.  Hopefully this will give them something to look forward to.


  1. Such a great idea!! We will be doing something similar soon enough. Thinking of you!

  2. what a cute idea. thinking of you as well and happy summer!!

  3. I'm planning to do something like this for the last 50 day!! Praying for you!!!

  4. Thanks! I wanted to do something I thought all the boys would get in to. I was wrong. Carson decided he no longer liked M&Ms! Go figure!


Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope in some way I have blessed you. I look forward to reading your comment. I may not always get the chance to respond, but I do read every comment.
