Celebrate your trip to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, your child’s themed birthday party or even Christmas with these great countdown calendar ideas.
When our family planned our trip to Universal Studios: The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, I created this great countdown calendar to put on the refrigerator to count down the days until we left. It was a morning ritual for one of the boys to mark another day closer to our big trip!
A Harry Potter Inspired, Magical Countdown Calendar Printable
A truly magical printable countdown calendar to mark off those final days until the big trip! Available at darcybaldwin.com as a free download.
Note: This image is 8×10.5 to fit on an 8.5×11 sheet. I suggest printing on card stock to keep a permanent marker from soaking through so easily. Alternatively, you can frame it and use a wipe-off marker on the glass to get the same result. You’ll just have to trim the edges a bit.

I realize that not everyone likes the same thing, so I’ve collected a few other Harry Potter themed countdowns for your trip to the Wizarding World or a themed birthday or even a countdown to Christmas. Have fun!
Color Your Own Harry Potter Inspired Countdown Calendar
This adorable coloring book inspired magical countdown calendar is a free download at MeandMyInklings.com It’s easy to put together and a great way for your kids to participate in the countdown each and every day. She also includes other great travel ideas, as well.
Want a super easy advent calendar to countdown to your favorite holiday, birthday party or trip? This magical countdown calendar is great as it uses envelopes and hand-drawn letters, but you could easily create a template of the envelope, and print those numbers off in whatever Harry Potter font you love most. Most printers already have standard size envelopes programmed. Fill each envelope with a treat, a hint, a sticker or other fun item to help make the time go by faster! This particular calendar was filled with Lego Harry Potter figures, but you could do Bertie Bots, stickers, trinkets, and more!
