How to Use

The glass in the frame serves as a wipe-on/wipe-off board. Use a marker to write down the event you are counting down and the number of days away.  Have the kids take turns wiping off the number and writing down the next one.  Yes, I like to pawn off as much as possible onto my kids.  {evil laugh}  No seriously, they really love it!
