Big Day Chains Birthday Countdown Paper ChainI owe a whopping thanks to Big Day Chains for getting me to my daughter’s 5th birthday (today!) without completely losing my mind. Because if there’s anything more annoying than the “Are we there yet?” question, it’s “How many days until my birthday?”

These smart 30 day countdown paper chains allow your kiddos to keep track of how many days are left without ever having to ask you. The packet contains perforated sheets splashed with bright birthday-themed graphics printed in soy ink on one side and blank pictures on the other side for your kids to color. Simply tear apart the strips, stick them together with the included self-adhesive dots (genius), and hang from a keepsake card that houses cute fill in the blank factoids about your birthday girl (or boy). Then each day she gets to cut off a link until her big day arrives.

$14.95 for a month’s worth of sanity? Absolutely. -Kristen
