Usually when we travel it’s with our young explorers so a LOT of preparation goes into our trips. I’m a BIG planner by nature when it comes to road trips to ensure that the kids are kept busy and happy as well as to make sure we don’t forget important things like deodorant and toothbrushes! (yep, been there done that!)
We’ve used several fun “systems” to count down to big road trips or vacations but the easiest one by far is to simply print out a vacation countdown chain. It saves you a TON of time from needing to write down each and every single number and it looks a TON nicer to print ones someone has already designed!
I’ll be making an entire series of these countdown chains and will link them up here when I’m done. I’m currently working on an outdoors/nature themed one, and then I’ll be creating a road trip one too. Who knows what will come after that?
Click the link below to print out your chains! Remember only to print the pages for as many days as you need! (No need to print 100 chains if you’re leaving in 30 days!) And please follow us over on Pinterest – not only do we have separate boards for each state in the USA as well as themes like caves, lighthouses, etc. in the US but you’ll probably also love our Travel Printables board and our DIY Travel Crafts, Keepsakes & Decor board!
Since we can’t cover everything in the USA our Twitter feed helps cover that by sharing all sorts of awesome places to visit and travel resources in the USA so follow us there too!
