Let your kids count down to Halloween with this fun Haunted House advent calendar. Once printed on to magnet paper, each piece can be added to the Haunted house to count down the last 13 days until Trick or Treating!
If your kids are anything like mine...they start asking "how long" until Halloween LONG before the big candy day. It gets a bit crazy with all the decorating and fun Halloween activities for a kid to be able to wait so long to be able to put on their Halloween costume and go trick or treating.
To save my sanity, and to have another reason to decorate, I created a countdown calendar for my kids. It starts 13 days before Halloween (that's today!) and lets them add one decoration to the Haunted House picture every day.
I decided to put my advent calendar on magnet paper and post it on the fridge. This made it super easy to create since all I had to do was print it onto Avery Magnet Sheets. I printed the haunted house picture on one sheet and the thirteen Halloween decorations on another sheet.
Then I cut out the Decoration pieces and placed the whole thing on the fridge. Starting today, the kids could put one decoration per day onto the Haunted house. When none are left, it's time to go Trick or Treating!
Have you found a way to keep the holiday fun for your kids but not drive you crazy as they wait for candy?
