Easter Gift Ideas: Countdown to Easter with a Fun Chocolate Countdown Calendar (Review)

Countdown Cal, Inc. - Holiday Countdown Calendars for Kids!

Does your family like counting down to Christmas with a chocolate advent calendar?  If so, why not count down to Easter with one?  Well, thanks to the folks at Countdown Cal, you can pick up this cute Easter Countdown Calendar Game for only $10.00.

Just like you would do with a Christmas advent calendar, you open a flap every day (this time starting on March 16th), as you count down until Easter Sunday and the visit by the Easter bunny.  What a cute idea, and I have to say the chocolate is tasty.  I was surprised to find Palmer crispy milk chocolate eggs behind the flaps of the USA made chocolate Easter Countdown Calendar Game.

In addition to counting down the days until Easter Sunday, this calendar also offers fun and games to keep the little one entertained and excited about Easter.  "Printed under each flap is an Easter mini picture to find in the garden scene on the back of the box.  Also printed under each flap is the number of days remaining until Easter, helping kids countdown to Easter! And, kids can Keep track of the flaps with the mascot "Countdown Pal" by coloring or drawing an X over the number in his smile everyday."

Here are a few photos I took of the girls the other day when I showed the calendar.  I wasn't expecting to have them open the flaps, as I wanted to wait until March 16th, but Savannah told me they had to try them -- I guess she knows that as my reviewer, she has to sample them and give me the A-OK, so I can share an honest review with you. :-)  

And, the verdict -- both Savannah and Arabella love these fun Easter Countdown Calendar Game.  And, thankfully I was sent another calendar, which I put away, so we can count down the days to Easter Sunday, which is March 31st.  Yikes!  This month is going by way to fast.

So, head on over to the Countdown Cal site today and order your Easter Countdown Calendar Game for only $10, to get in time for the 16th.  And, then, have fun counting down with your kids and finding the hidden objects on the back of the calendar, as you enjoy delicious, mouth watering crispy chocolate eggs from Palmer. :-)

And, make note that the folks at Countdown Cal also offer a Halloween Countdown Calendar.  I will definitely be picking these up for the girls come October. :-)
