Chalkboard Countdown Plaques!! Great way to keep track of those exciting days!!

Hi Lil’ Luna Readers!  It’s Ginger from Ginger Snap Crafts.  I am so thrilled to be visiting Lil’ Luna again!
Summer time is in full swing at our house, so my crafting is taking a back seat to having fun with my kiddos!
As we speak we are leaving for our summer vacation!  So today I’d love to share a simple & easy craft!
My kiddos actually helped me make these fun {chalkboard} countdown plaques!
Just a little background on how I came up with these. 😉
I am the hardest person to shop for…my poor hubby!
Buuut last Christmas he was trying extra hard I guess!
He bought me a whole stack of these wood plaques for Christmas!

I guess he thought if he bought me something crafty I’d LOVE it!
I really did appreciate his gift but had no idea what I’d make with them until a couple of weeks ago!
I’m participating in several different craft swaps this summer.
{You can learn more about the ones I’m participating in here & here}.
So I needed something quick, inexpensive & FUN!
So these made perfect gifts!  So my hubby’s pretty good at gift giving after all! 😉

Supplies you’ll need are:

painted wood plaques {can be found at any craft store}

chalkboard vinyl,

self adhesive magnetic strips

vinyl lettering

Chalkboard Countdown Plaques!! Great way to keep track of those exciting days!!

1.  Paint your plaques, let dry & then apply the chalkboard vinyl.

2. Apply your vinyl lettering.

3. Turn your plaque over & put on your adhesive magnetic strips.
(I used 2 strips for each plaque.)

Now you are ready to countdown some fun activities like:

birthdays, days until school is out/starts,

visits from the grandparents & vacations.

When I gave these as a gift I just attached a tag with washi tape & included some chalk.  Super cute!

aw you have to love when they try so hard to get the right gift, my hubby actually asked “did I do good?” And he totally didn’t but at least he tried.

Hi there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask. Does operating a well-established blog such as yours take a large amount of work? I am brand new to blogging but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!

    I can’t speak for Kristyn but YES having a blog does require a large amount of work! I really enjoy working on my blog so it doesn’t seem like work though! It’s a lot fun. The main thing I have to focus on is when to stop working on my blog…you literally could work on your blog 24/7. So it’s all about managing your time & knowing when to close the computer. 🙂 Good luck to you & your blog.

You really have a great time with your kiddos. Making these plaques give a lot of fun to your kids. I am planning also for good craft to do for my kids this summer.
