Can you believe it will be October soon?! I had to check the calendar multiple times just so it would hit me September is almost done and it’ll soon be time for all things pumpkin & Halloween. I for one am beyond excited for Fall and can’t wait to celebrate the season!
One of my favorite things about Fall is Halloween and my kids love it too. I mean, what kid doesn’t like to play dress up right? It’s such a fun day and they get to gorge on candy. What’s not to like? I get more excited now as a mom seeing my kids plan their costumes and count down the days until Halloween. It makes the holiday more interactive and we look forward to it even more.
My kids and I have such a good time counting down for special days so I created this easy & cute ghost printable!
All you need is the printable, glue of your choice, cotton balls (or anything you’d like to glue to the numbers) and a place to keep it easily accessible to work on it the month of October. That’s it!
The ghost has 30 numbers to countdown from October 1st, 30 days until Halloween. We will start on number 30 October 1st but filled one out just for fun now.
I placed the numbers out of order as a learning opportunity. The boys had fun finding the numbers and counting up and down from 30. Before they glued anything on, they placed cotton balls on the numbers to count and we talked about how some of the circles are smaller than others.
At the end of the month it should look like a puffy white ghost! My kids wanted to just use cotton balls for the whole thing but you can use anything you have like tissue paper, dotting (bingo) markers, buttons, paper scraps, etc… For the word Boo (numbers 1 & 2) you can even use cotton balls painted in black!
It’s all about making it your own & having a good time!
