In honor of my sweet Zoe’s 8th birthday this weekend, I’m sharing a fun printable birthday countdown chart! I can’t believe my little girl is going to be 8!! Where did my baby go? Time flies. I am so proud of what a sweet, smart, confident, and strong girl she is. It’s been a rough year for her and I’m so happy that things are better now that we know about her food sensitivities and how to help her. She deserves the best birthday ever!!

I like countdown charts because they help children understand the amount of time that will pass until an event. When we moved into our new house a few years ago, I created a countdown chart so Zoe would be able to to track the days until we moved in a tangible/visual way. I think this helped her feel more comfortable with the transition.
This chart that can be printed on card stock or laminated to re-use each year. Or you can print it on regular paper and use it once. You can either place all of the candles on the cake and take one off each day or place one candle on the cake each day, either way. It starts ten days before your child’s birthday.
Hope you enjoy!
