Draw! When there are about 10 days until the new school year begins, make a poster to help you get ready. Use Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils to draw a large apple tree—or any theme you choose. Draw the same number of apples as there are days until school starts (or jobs left to do!).
Organize! Inside each apple, write things that you need to do to get ready for school: find your book bag, buy art supplies, label belongings, walk the route with an adult, polish shoes—you get the idea.
Countdown! Erase the inside of th apple when each activity is completed leading up to the first day of school.
