# How Many Days Old Are You?

It’s amazing how the numbers add up when you do something every day. Tying your shoes, walking your dog, eating your favorite snack… over 3 months you’ll do that thing almost 100 times. Over 3 years, you’ll do it more than 1,000 times! That’s because there are 365 days in a year, which is about a third of a thousand. If you do it more than once a day, then you need to multiply by that factor, too. When you use this math, you see that the zeroes add up fast!

Wee ones: How old are you in years? Count up to that number with a grown-up!

Little kids: If you sneeze once a day every day, how many times do you sneeze in 1 week?  Bonus:If you walk your new puppy twice a day, how many times do you do that in 1 week?

Big kids: If you eat 5 Oreos every day, about how many do you eat in 6 months? (Hint if needed: First, about how many do you eat in 3 months?)  Bonus: If it takes you 100 days to learn to skateboard and you start learning in the beginning of June, in what month can you finally do it?

The sky’s the limit: If you live about 1,000 days every 3 years, about how many days have you lived so far?
