Everyone has celebrations and important dates that they need to remember. Sometimes the event on these dates is exciting and other times it is met with apprehension. This CountUP calendar fits both scenarios! You can make this craft for anyone who has an upcoming event, in order to further the enthusiasm or calm the dread. For example, if your child's birthday is 10 days away, you could count up to that date. It would create so much excitement for them and be kind of like a ten-day birthday celebration. Everyday they would get something new!
Okay, now imagine you have a family member, friend, or coworker who is going to need surgery soon. They have the surgery date and are stressed out about it. The CountUP calendar can be used the same way as for a birthday, but hopefully elicit a calming effect in the person needing the surgery. Every new day will bring positive thoughts, quotes, and prayers to remind them they are not alone in their struggle. There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
