How to create an easy Countdown Clock for your blog or webpage!

I recently wanted to add a countdown clock to a blog post of mine so I began the Google search.  Don't you just love Google?!  Anything you could possibly want to know, just a few clicks away.  Except for Chuck Norris.  Google can tell us everything except for where Chuck Norris is hiding.  Don't believe me? Try it.  Go to the Google homepage and ask "where is Chuck Norris".  Or save yourself some typing and click {HERE}.  Told ya so. :)

Back to the countdown clock...I found an VERY easy and free clock at Counting Down To...  There is the option to upgrade (pay) and change the color of your clock, but if you are fine with gray, don't bother.  You can choose to register or just start creating your clock.
1st- Name the event, enter the date, and choose your timezone.
2nd- Click embed
{The advanced options are for paying customers only.  You can change the text & background color, as well as the format.  Free clocks look like the one above.}

Copy the HTML code, go to your post draft, click HTML, and paste the code into your blog post. 
That's it!!  You have a countdown clock! Click {HERE} to see mine.  If you add a countdown clock in a blog post or webpage, I'd love to see it-leave a link to it in the comment section.

I created a quick math scavenger hunt today for my kids and I thought I would share it with you.  If you are anything like me, you are looking for fun review activities for the end of the year- check it out!  Click the image below to download.  There are 2 versions- 1 for indoors and 1 for out!
