31 Days of Halloween: Day 1 - Halloween Countdown


Welcome to 31 Days of Halloween! I'm excited to share lots of Fall and Halloween fun over the next month. To kick off our Halloween countdown, what better than a Halloween countdown calendar?


I put together this countdown calendar with just 3 sheets of paper and some stickers. I used the frame that I had bought for Ethan's birthday to display his monthly pictures and found out it was actually an advent calendar kit. You can still find them on eBay here. I cut out 2 different banner shapes with my Silhouette cutter using 3 12 x 12 sheets of Halloween paper. Then I just numbered the banners from 1-31 with some stickers I had. If you don't have a frame like this, you could use a bulletin board or hang the banners from a string.


On the back of each of the banners I wrote a fun Halloween activity to do each day. Things like, "Read a Halloween Book," "Make a Halloween Craft," or "Bake a Halloween Treat." It will be fun to do something Halloween themed with Ethan throughout the month.
