????????????Countdowns are a fun way to keep kids interested in an event they may otherwise forget about. It can also help them to understand and gauge the length of time that will pass before the day arrives. Countdowns can put a  fun spin on learning numbers and counting backwards – whether you’re counting down 10 days, 100 days or 365 days of the year.

This craft printable is great because it’s fun to make and visually appealing to hold the attention of  little ones. Each strip of paper is equipped with a basic number 1-10 which will help teach number recognition and linking the loops together will help little ones learn to count in order.

Use  the Countdown Caterpillar to countdown to the 1st day of Spring on March 20th, 2013!
