Let me introduce you to one of my very favorite Etsy shops, JackFish Designs. The creative mama behind JackFish Designs just so happens to be a mom of two boys *and* one of my most favorite new friends, Ting Bresnahan. Always a fan of paper and packaging, Ting has made her own party favors, stickers, monogramed notecards, and personalized frames for years. She started to give these items to friends and family as gifts and very quickly people around town started to notice. Houston, while very cosmopolitan, has proud southern roots and therefore loves their monogrammed items! Ting’s unique designs are colorful, bright and beautifully printed, perfect for kiddos and adults alike.
One of my most favorite items in the JackFish Designs shop is the Countdown Calendar. These are “Non DIY” which is great for moms like me – they arrive printed and with everything you need, including the calendar, stickers, and ribbon hanger. Your kiddos will love to countdown to a big holiday, be it Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas using the little stickers to cover each day of the month as it passes.
These Countdown Calendars are as educational as they are cute! As a busy mom of a 3 year old and a 4.5 year old, Ting knows how much children love the anticipation of a big holiday. Hanging the calendar in the reach of your kiddos gives them something to look forward to doing each day. Counting down to a big holiday teaches them to work towards a goal, patience, numbers, dates, months and seasons…you name it. There are so many great conversations you can have with your children as you work through the month together.
Bennett is as excited about this Countdown Calendar as I am! And guess what? JackFish Designs has generously offered a countdown calendar to one lucky Luxe reader. If you win, you can choose Halloween (although you’ll receive mid-month), Thanksgiving, or Christmas and have it personalized with your child’s name. So cute, so easy, so fun, and so educational!
