Okay, this has to be one of the COOLEST birthday countdowns we’ve ever done! Just look at his face – that is one happy kiddo!
I was randomly surfing the Internet one night when I came across this free, downloadable birthday countdown poster. I thought it was too good to be true, but sure enough, this file is free, HUGE, and so much fun to create!
As luck would have it, I stumbled upon this poster one month before my son’s birthday. So I downloaded the freebie, brought it to my local Staples, and had it printed on a black-and-white engineering print (for less than $4!!).
We filled in all of the blank sections, including his name, age, “Wish List”, and the day of his birthday. Then, every morning, we woke up and placed two pieces of tape over the corresponding countdown number. (I get asked ALL THE TIME – we used my favorite tape, available on Amazon, you can find it here.)
We had SO MUCH FUN with this!! Thirty full days of it! And when his birthday party came around, the poster served as a great decoration – win-win!
To get your own countdown poster, head on over to Petite Lemon. And if you liked this idea – I know you’ll love my Birthday Cake Countdown Chain, Birthday Card Candy Grams, or my other birthday posts here.
What do you think? Do you know any little ones who would love this project?
