Sense of time for children is a difficult concept because up to the age of 6 their brain is not able to abstract.⁣ But waiting is a skill you can practice (like the kids in the photo)!⁣
This super easy calendar (➡️) has always been my method to help Oliver and Emily understand how many days are left to an event (birthday, my return from a journey...):⁣

- I draw on a paper sheet as many circles as the days that Oliver and Emily have to wait.⁣
- I stick our "calendar" onto the fridge.⁣
- Every morning they color in a circle.⁣

On the blog I’ll explain our calendars in the photos and I’ll give suggestions on what NOT to do: .⁣
