This is a classic! Caden and I sat down together during our alone time and wrote all of the things he was looking forward to about his birthday on to strips of paper. Balloons, cake, friends, Grandma and many others. Once they were all written out we worked on putting them into a pattern then into a chain! Caden is very excited to pull one off each day and talk about the exciting thing that is written on it! It also helps him see how much time is left till his Big Day!
