Halloween is approaching- and the excitement around our house is brewing! It is not only for this fun (and sometimes spooky) holiday, but it also the birthday of my beloved daughter- and now you know why we call her our Boo!
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:
Here is the plan: each day my daughter will pick one numbered pumpkin from the pumpkin patch… which is conveniently located on her door. On the back side of the pumpkin will be a clipart showing her the theme of the day. For older kids you could simply write the theme on the back of the pumpkins.
