Free Printable Blank Countdown-4

May is a really busy month in this house! We have two birthdays and an anniversary to celebrate. This means we do a lot of counting down! We are always counting down to something.

To help my little one grasp the concept of a countdown, I created a blank countdown printable for us to use. Right now, we are counting down the days until his birthday. The best part about using a blank printable is that we can use it over and over again with the help of a dry erase marker!

Once his birthday comes and go, we will then start counting down until my oldest’s birthday! After that? The end of school! The countdown will help me prepare them for their summer break and also remind me how much time I have left to myself!

For the best results, print out your blank printable on white cardstock. Then add to an 8×10 frame you probably have laying around the house (or larger frame with an 8×10 opening). You will have to trim the sides down to fit.

Place the printable in your frame and you can easily write and re-write your countdown with a dry erase marker. I have found that the thinner dry erase markers work best! The glass in the frame acts like a dry-erase board so you can wipe off whenever you are ready to switch your countdown.
