Candy Countdowns for ANY Occasion!

Remember the days when you were a child? How long summer vacation lasted? How Christmas & your birthday never seemed like they would arrive? Now there is a sweet way for your child to count down the days to all the special events throughout the year. From birthdays & Christmas, to Halloween & Easter. Virtually any special event can be made more tangible to your child with a candy countdown.

You can request individual items or combination items. Christmas & birthday countdowns are offered on an individual basis only. Both can be personalized for your child. More generic countdowns to special holidays can be combined. For example, you may order a pink ribbon to go with both Valentine's Day and Easter, and then request a heart icon and a bunny icon to go along with the one pink ribbon. All countdowns contain a bell at the bottom, just to add to the fun.

Ribbons are $12.00 apiece for each individual order. For combined orders, each ribbon is $10 and any "icon" to go along with the ribbon is just $5.00 extra. Note that up to 31 ties total can be attached to the ribbon--you specify the number needed for the particular countdown. (For example, if your child's birthday is on the 22nd of the month, you can request 22 ties to be attached. If your child's birthday is on the 3rd of the month, you can begin however many days prior to the birthday that you would like.)

Both the Christmas & birthday ribbons include a special countdown poem for your child, located in the hat portion.

Additional ideas would include a countdown to either the first or last day of school, the arrival home of a loved one, a new baby, etc.

To order a candy countdown or if you have any additional questions, you may e-mail me at:

Christmas & Birthday Poems

Christmas Poem (in the shape of a Christmas tree):

Dec. 1st to Christmas is the longest time of the year.
Seems as tho old Santa never will appear.
How many days til Christmas?
It is mighty hard to count.
So this little candy ribbon will tell you the exact amount.
Untie a candy every night when the sandman casts his spell,
And Christmas will be here by the time you reach the bell.

Birthday Poem:

It's almost my birthday,
But time seems to go so slow.
And so I'll use my candy countdown
As I wait for the days to go.
With each day that passes,
I'll untie a treat.
My birthday arrives
After the last sweet.
