Here's a quick and easy way to let your kids countdown to Halloween!
Halloween Paper Chain
stapler or tape
Cut 2" strips of paper in the color of your choice. We used yellow, black, purple and orange.
Staple or tape the pieces together to make a chain.
As each day goes by, you can remove a link or put a sticker on each link as you countdown to the last.
If you opt for the sticker option, you can use your chain as a fun garland :)
** I originally spotted this Halloween Paper Chain idea at Tinkerlab. For more inspiration visit Marie at Makes & Takes, I love her idea for a Witch and Pumpkin Countdown chain! I saw it after we already made ours.
Sophie also has her own calendar, and is counting down the days by marking each day up until Halloween! She's excited!
