A New Take on the Paper Chain Countdown

Here is an updated version of the classic paper chain.

Cut out a long strip from a piece of colored paper.

Fold it in half.

On the outside, top of the halved paper, write how many days there is left until ____ (whatever you using the chain for.)


On the inside, write a fun fact about _____, draw something, or write a joke.

Make the folded strips into the classic chain shape, and start the countdown!


We are going on vacation tomorrow (!!!), so that’s what I used the chain for.  I’ll see you in about 2 weeks!

  1. That is SO cool! I’ve never seen this before, but I really like it. 🙂 Have a GREAT time on vacation! (I hear from your sister that the water is very warm…. 😉 )
    P.S. I have a little bit of news to share with you (and anyone else reading this that follows my blog).
    My tablet (where I usually do posts and answer emails) is dying-it won’t hold a charge anymore. WordPress doesn’t work on the family laptop, so I can’t do any posts for a bit. I hopefully will be able to get a new tablet soon, but I just wanted to let you know that if you don’t see me around for a while, this is why. 😉


      1. I’m really glad!! And I’m thrilled that you’re back too!!! 😀 😀 Oh, and I thought I commented on your blog about my dilemma…I guess I didn’t. 😉


Your comments make my day! Please keep them clean and respectful so everyone can enjoy this blog. :) Thank you!
