Countdown to Halloween

Susie and Brendie  keep asking when Halloween is and how much longer it will be before they get to go trick or treating.  The Great Pumpkin thought the girls would enjoy making a countdown chain to Halloween.  

Countdown to Halloween.

Materials Needed:

Construction paper (We used orange and black)

Scissors and Glue

Fold the paper into strips

Cut the paper along the creased edges.

Put glue on one end of the paper strip.

Link the ends together to form a chain.

This craft is super easy and quick to do.  We did end up making 2 chains one for each girl so they would each have their own.

Ready to countdown.

Now at the end of each day tear off one of their links to their chain as we count down to Halloween.
