Birthday Countdown!!

March 18th my 4 year old turned into a 5 year old!! It is exciting and scary all at the same time. I am already counting down the days that she starts school. We are at 5 months now. I am a mixed bag of emotions about that situation right now.

Anyway, on to fun things!! At this age my daughter is all about countdowns! They help keep her from asking how many days until (insert fun activity here). We have a Christmas countdown, I used one for our Disney trip and most recently I created one for her birthday! I searched for hours trying to find something that would work for her online to no avail. I don't know why I spent so much time searching for one online. I am a graphics designer! This is what I DO!!

I created the version on the left but she walked over while I was working on it and of course had to change things up! First, she added her name and then we had to change the font. She called her version video game style! Both options are available for FREE download in my google drive! These are 2 week birthday countdowns. For the "video game" style I used Small fonts, fixedsys or you can download Press Start 2P from Google Fonts. Check out this Google Fonts tutorial if you need help. Of course I left off her name so that you can add your child's name! We placed random stickers on each day as they came.

Do you use countdowns with your kids? What sort of countdown would you like me to make next?
TL:DR - Here's the link, download a FREE Birthday Countdown!
