Part of the fun of going on vacation is counting down the number of days until your adventure! Once you book the holiday, the excitement starts building for the whole family. Two weeks to go, one week, two more days!
Research shows simply the anticipation of a trip can boost happiness, and counting down the days to the vacation builds even more excitement.
That’s why we recommend a Countdown Calendar!
You will find all sorts of tools out there, from phone and tablet apps to digital countdown timers that can sit on a nightstand or kitchen counter. Or, you can do something non-digital like a paper calendar, chalkboard, or whiteboard.
Our favorite has always been the Paper Chain countdown calendar. Stringing together paper loops with numbers on them, tearing off one per day, making the chain shorter as the departure date gets closer!
We’ve created a KeeKee version you can download and build with your kids right now!
Kids (and adults) love a good countdown! Everyone will know exactly how many sleeps they have until their big vacation adventure.
