This Easy Craft Creates Kid Birthday Fun

paper chain craftI don’t know who gets more excited for my kid’s birthdays; me or the kids?

My youngest’s birthday is coming up at the end of January.  Over the years we have exchanged many notes to each other; it’s been one of our little ‘things’ that I treasure and love.  So I thought this easy craft would create a little birthday fun to share with her as we counted down to her big day in a special way.

It was very inexpensive, because I used what I already had in the house.  I’m notorious for purchasing scrapbooking paper & then not ever getting to ‘it’, but will some day.  So I raided my craft stash of scrapbook papers and pull out a bunch of wintery pink and purple sheets that were decorated with mittens, snowflakes, etc.  I then cut them into strips & created a paper rings with a stapler to countdown each day until her birthday.  I then attached notes to the chain in sealed envelopes for her to discover as a surprise along they way as she counted down.  It was simple & it has been fun and it’s just a little something extra to celebrate her!
