We made Countdown Blocks a few years ago at a Super Saturday. I decided that I wanted to be able to display my blocks year-round, and not just for Christmas. So I used non-themed paper. My kids like to countdown to lots of things, like school starting and ending, birthdays, all holidays, gramma and grampa coming home from their mission, and so on.
So, what's in 11 days?
My birthday!!! The big 42 is creeping up in May!
These blocks are just modge podged paper and die cut numbers/letters on wooden blocks. The base is a 2x4. Pretty easy! And actually, a third block would be handy just to have extra numbers for counting down from high numbers. For example, I can't make the numbers 33-35, but I can make 36-39. Just something to think about if you wanted to make some!
And what is coming up in 13 days?
Why, Mothers' Day of course!!!
