Yesterday marked 30 days before my Calla girl turns seven! First of all, I can’t believe she is going to be a seven year old. We love to celebrate birthdays in our family and Sara and Harper actually started this fun birthday countdown paper chain tradition several years ago. The month before a birthday, you create a paper chain of 30 links. Each day in that month before a child’s birthday, they get to tear one link off. We even like to make wishes each day!
I created this fun black and white DIY Birthday Countdown Paper Chain Printable for you guys. All you have to do is download one file, print out some copies and cut and tape away. We even printed some on watercolor paper and let the girls paint the links. And here’s another one of our favorite birthday celebration DIY projects, our birthday candle garland.
