At Momtourage (the moms group I’m a part of) we made birthday coutdowns. The idea is, you have a weeks worth of pockets tied to a ribbon and every day before their birthday, your kid gets to open a pocket and get a little treat. It’s a nice way to let them know that their birthday is almost here. I ended up not being at that meeting, but I got all the supplies and made it at home. Here’s the finished product! I love it!!! It goes all the way down to one, but it looked too small in the picture, so I just got the first few pockets. you get the idea, right?
