Celebration Countdown Chain

Count the days until your birthday, the first day of school, or holidays such as Valentine’s Day! Before you know it, the big day will arrive.

Steps:

1

1 Are you eager to celebrate your next birthday? Can’t wait for Valentine’s Day? Whatever the holiday that’s coming up, count down the days with this chain.

2

2 With Crayola Scissors, cut as many strips of white paper as there are days until the holiday. For Valentine’s Day, you would use 14 strips to start counting on February 1.

3

3 Use Crayola Classic Fine Line Markers and MiniStampers to decorate each strip differently. Include holiday sayings, symbols, and other designs.

4

4 Cut slightly wider strips of colored paper. Attach your decorated strips to them with a Crayola Glue Stick.

5

5 Glue the strips together to create a paper chain.

6

6 Remove one link each day until your holiday arrives!
