Countdown to Halloween

Our family just loves fall and all of the fun activities that happen during this time of year like fall festivals, going to the pumpkin patch, the leaves changing colors, the fair and of course trick or treating.  This year I thought it would be fun this year to make a calendar to countdown to Halloween. I loved the one I saw here so I made my own version. I took little colored envelopes I found in the teacher section of the Dollar Tree and glued them to black poster board and added cut outs, stickers etc. to decorate them. I will put a long black slip of paper in each one of our activity for the day.

Paint a pumpkin, make goop, go to pumpkin patch, carve pumpkin, go to the zoo, family Halloween/dress up party, make candy apples, various Halloween/Fall crafts, walking in the woods, Halloween movie night, the fair, and that is about all I have for now. I plan on getting all of the slips of paper filled out and put in this afternoon. What fun things do you have planned for October?
