Resource Info

Perhaps you’re a military family or your child has a parent or caregiver that regularly works away from home, these countdown calendars are perfect for helping children understand how long their parent or loved one may be gone. Relieve separation anxiety and help children concentrate on their loved one’s return – watch as they excitedly shade the days and countdown until their reunion.

Directions: Use this weekly calendar to colour in each day that passes. This helps your child to realise that they will be coming home and allows them to focus on their return.
