Sefirat Haomer Chart

You Will Need:
Poster Board
(optional) Other decorating supplies: glue, glitter, fake flowers, sequins, etc

On the posterboard draw a big mountain with the 10 Commandments on the top. Then draw 49 footprints (or rocks, or flowers, or whatever you want) leading up the mountain. Number them 1 to 49 starting from the bottom and moving up to the top. Use your decorating supplies to decorate around the mountain however you'd like. Each night that you count the omer, color in one of the footsteps (or rocks, or flowers, etc.)
