There are a lot of ways to keep a little one excited about a holiday. Most people use calendars and let them mark a day at a time off on it. This is a Great Idea, but there are other neat ways too. These Countdown Rings are a fabulous way to keep kids excited about a holiday or special occasion and it can help them with numbers and counting. There is nothing more important than learning a lesson and having fun at the same time right?
In the photo above the rings are used for the last week or so before a young child’s birthday. They used only the days of the week and the last ring being the birthday. I love the rings idea it seems like an easy, but good way to keep up the daily countdown.
I love when they can do things that they enjoy or find more fun and when it’s a learning experience as well. Another way you can do Countdowns is use a cork board or something you can tape up balloons. Get some water balloons cause they are small and blow them up and write a number on each one. You can put this in random order or in numerical order and let your child pop one a day. They have to make sure they get the right number though!
