Birthday Countdown

My daughter’s birthday is just around the corner (panic!) so when I saw this project by Maria of Love & Sugar Kisses I knew it was a must!

As soon as we started counting down for Christmas she has been asking when her birthday is and this little birthday countdown will help us both keep track.  She was so excited when I showed it to her, and has already designated a time to change it each day.

This was a very easy and cheap project (in my case it was FREE!)  I used one of my dollar store picture frames I had spray painted red for a party, left over scrapbook paper, my square flourish punch, and Celebrations Cricut cartridge to make this festive frame.

Only 14 days left until my little girl turns 5 (sniff, sniff) and that means there are only 13 days until the big party…which means I better get busy!

Do you have a birthday countdown or special way to celebrate your kids birthdays?

I am sharing this project at these sites.

  1. Love this too!! Hope you can link it up at my turquoise lovin' party going on right now!

  2. Love this!! Can't wait to see her party!!! :-)))

  3. What a cute idea! But doesn't a countdown add to “Mommy Planner's” pressure?

  4. Thanks! Bellenza Wedding Bistro, yes it does contribute a little to the pressure, but it has also helped as a gentle reminder and I'm a little more motivated to get things done. But most importantly, she loves waking up each morning and seeing how many more days until her special day, her enthusiasm is infectious! 🙂
