Halloween countdown calendar

I just love countdown calendars, don't you?  Last week, I was holding this old dry erase board calendar in my hands, ready to throw it away when I realized I could use it for a Halloween countdown.  Halloween used to whip my girls into a frenzy.  They would start planning for it in August!  This calendar is a fun way to count down the days til the big night...

I cut squares out of Halloween paper from K and Company.  I cut them the same size as the boxes on the calendar.  Next I added some die cuts from K and Company onto each square.  To make the squares more sturdy, I ran them through the laminator.

Next I added a few 3D embellishments to the pieces..  I glued magnets to the back and it is done!

Each day they can add a new square to the calendar...  this would be a cute idea for Christmas too!


  1. Great job! So fun and colorful!

  2. Really cute! And there are tons of calendars like this on clearance right now since "back to school" is over.

  3. Cute and I like the Christmas idea!
    See you Saturday!

  4. Too cute for words!!!!! What a wonderful way to look forward to such a fun time of the year!!! Are you going to dress in costume for your preschoolers this year???!
