Birthday Countdown

M's birthday is at the end of this month, an event she is eagerly anticipating. Every day she asks me if it is her birthday yet, so Daddy suggested we make her a countdown calendar. I took a crown-shaped piece of foam board and wrote Happy Birthday on it, and then attached a crepe-paper chain to it. There are exactly as many links as there are days until M's birthday. Each morning, she removes a link from the chain and we count how many links are left.

It's a very simple idea, but I think this visual reminder is helping her see that the days are passing until her birthday, and it's great counting practice as well.


  1. Sweet idea, of course I look forward to that first tooth loss milestone and many more baby teeth after that! ✰♦.·**•.✰ Sprinkles of fairy dust...and HEY Diddle Diddle, also a sweet idea to stay green & recycle!
