I also want her to know how important it is that we take the time to celebrate our loved one's birthdays and how special they are to us. Birthdays are fun and joyous days and everyone loves and deserves to know that they are remembered in some way.
Every year I buy a new yearly planner and the first thing I do is go through each month and write down family and friends' birthdays and anniversaries. It's fun to see if I have any new additions to add throughout the year if I've made a new friend or if there's a new baby in the family (I come from a large extended family!). And with my daughter starting preschool in just a few short weeks she'll be making friends of her own and birthdays and birthday celebrations will become an even bigger part of our lives, which I really look forward to.
So of course I was thrilled when I came across Rae's jane's girl designs shop. Rae makes these fantastic birthday boards that not only help you to remember all of those special birthdays throughout the year but I think putting birthdays on display like this sets a wonderful example to our children. It's another way that we can show our children that birthdays are important and special days to celebrate and it helps to create those wonderful memories that we all want for our children.
Check out these great birthday boards by jane's girl designs. There are several ways to customize the look--from the color of the discs to the color of the board and the wording on the board. Just let Rae know what you have in mind and she'll help work with you to get the custom board you're looking for. (All photos courtesy of jane's girl designs)
Rae suggests using a fine point sharpie to write on the discs......
Several color options to choose from for your disc color(s):
Be sure to read through the description of each item for specifics on the dimensions of the board as well as how many discs are included with the purchase.
