Valentine's day countdown & bonus printable

My kids love countdowns and holidays.  This year we are doing 14 days of Valentine's fun!  Each day they can pick a number and we will do the activity on the back.  There are a couple that do need to be done on a certain day like our Valentine's dinner and party.  I've shared the list of activities we are going to be doing, how to make your own frame, and a printable to make your own.     
Also I had a little room on the last page so I made a bonus printable as well (fits a 4x6 frame).  

First up our list of activities- you can write them on the back of your cards or keep a master list that corresponds with the numbers.  That's what I like to do in case I need to switch up an activity one day. 

1. family movie night
2. Read Valentine books
3.  Make cards for class and family
4. Decorate sugar cookies
5. Friend Party
6. Special family dinner
9. bingo or game
12. make Valentine oreos

For the frame I used an old 16x20 that didn't have glass.  It was previously painted black and needed some love.  

I painted the frame white and sanded it down with my electric sander.

I attached some rope with hot glue to the back.  I did 4 rows evenly spaced.

Print out the 3 printables below (I used plain printer paper).  Cut and attach to rope with clothes pins.  If you want to go across instead of down you will want to use small clothes pins.  The large ones are too heavy and will flop forward.   To print the pages below: click on the image and save to your computer or you can copy and paste into a word document and size to your liking. Then print.

What activities are you going to add?

 Did you see the bonus printable?  Its on the 3rd page.  

 I love it on my shelf/fake mantle.
