I am so excited to show you something I have been working on for awhile now..just in time for the Halloween season!
Today you can find me over at eighteen25 for Spooktacular September where you can pick up a FREE Halloween Countdown House and the directions to make it. When you make the calendar, behind each door and window will be one activity to do with your family to make October the best month yet of this year! My kids are so excited to get going.
Today, I wanted to share the 31 activities with links to ideas for them. This will make your month go smoothly and make it more enjoyable for you. And you will notice that 9 different activities have an orange star on them? Well, to make these activities even easier..I have designed printables for those 9 days and for just $3 you can purchase the printables that you will be able to use year after year. First, let’s go over the activities (bolded activities come in the printable pack):
OCTOBER DAILY COUNTDOWN
1-”BOO” 2 FAMILIES- if you don’t know what this is, you simply get a bucket and fill it with Halloween treats/goodies and leave a cute poem and picture with the person (you do this secretly)..they put the picture on their door that says they have been “booed” and then they pass it on..and on..and on.
2-MAKE A HALLOWEEN GARLAND
3-DECORATE FOR HALLOWEEN- get all your goodies out and let your little ghouls help you decorate. I am loving the inspiration from HERE and HERE.
4-MAKE SOME SPOOKY SPIDERS-go for a walk and find rocks, then make THESE.
6-TRY BOBBING FOR APPLES- get a bucket of water and some yummy apples. Perfect for a warm day or just to remember the past!
7-WRAP UP YOUR KIDS LIKE MUMMIES – I giggled when I saw a picture of a kid wrapped up in toilet paper and cannot wait to do this with my kids. Make sure to take a picture!
