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!!).

Then we grabbed our markers (this Crayola pack is our favorite) and party balloons – and got to work!

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!
