Snow has already begun to fly here in Vermont. I am nowhere near ready for the cold temps that are already coming. Luckily for me, we’re headed to Mexico in a few weeks! I decided that instead of a ton of gifts and toys that the kids don’t need, I was going to bring them on a trip and make memories this Christmas. I worked with a travel agent and found a great family resort and we’re all counting down the days to our family trip. To help build the excitement, and because the kids kept asking, I made this printable Vacation Countdown. I used a coral and turquoise palette to match my decor. I love the softness and the beach vibe it is giving off! Each day we check off a circle and now we easily know how many days until we leave. 

Printable Beach Vacation Countdown

Dolphins are my favorite sea animal, and my daughter loves turtles, so naturally I had to add both to the printable. And who doesn’t love a gorgeous sun rise over the ocean? Throw in a bit of coral and some watercolor turquoise water and you have the perfect underwater themed vacation countdown. Am I right?

And of course I’m going to share with you, in case you’re planning a vacation in the future. 30 days before your trip, download the printable vacation countdown below. Save it to your computer, open in Adobe Reader and print onto 8.5 x 11 paper. Cut it out and frame in an 8×10 frame. Use a dry erase marker to mark off each day. Crossing off that last number is always so satisfying!

I’ll be sure to share more about our Mexican Beach Vacation with the kids. Until then, stay warm!
