This is a countdown idea that I got from another fabulous military wife and friend.
Deployments can be especially hard on young children and it often helps to have a countdown for them while their Daddy is away. This one is made from an empty Ammo can and is decorated with pictures of the P’s and their daddy.
Use clear contact paper over the pictures to adhere them to the outside of the can. Fill the inside of the can with one Hershey’s Kiss for every day that Daddy will be gone and each day they get to have a ‘Kiss’ from Daddy.
