I thought it would be fun to create a "13 Days of Halloween" countdown for Boo. Why 13? Because that is a superstitious-Halloweenish number. I created simple pumpkin shapes using the Gimp (but cutting shapes out of glittery scrapbook paper on the Cricut would totally enhance the cuteness factor!) I included the free download of the numbered pumpkin shapes so you can make this for your family!
I plopped myself down and thought about what activities I wanted to make sure I got in before Halloween- because there are SO many to choose from! Well, there was a lot of ideas. So instead of just doing activities, I thought it would be fun to have 13 themes. This is what I came up with:
Each theme day will include a few activities- stories, craft, treats (of course!), etc... I love the themed idea because I have more freedom to cut out activities if we just aren't in the mood that day AND I can try and squish in so many of the darling ideas I have found! And don't worry- for the next thirteen days I will be posting ideas that go with each of these themes!
I have to add that this idea came while searching Pinterest and seeing this lovely and crafty set created by Paper Crave (isn't it delightful?).
There is also a Halloween countdown idea at My Delicious Ambiguity which uses envelopes, notecards, and a creative flair!
I am SO excited to do this countdown with my daughter this year! YAY for Halloween fun- let's make some fabulous memories with our families this year!
