Ever since we celebrated Little Bug’s birthday at the end of August, I’ve heard a familiar chant each day… “Halloween is next!”.  Although we’ve enjoyed Halloween the last couple of years, this seems to be the first year that she’s really into it. 

In recent weeks, we’ve been talking about how to decorate the house, Halloween craft projects to make and practicing saying our “Trick or Treat” nice and loudly for Halloween night.


It’s been hard to explain to Little Bug that Halloween is still over a month or 31 days away.  She always wakes up thinking it is today (despite the fact that we still haven’t decorated, finished our costumes or really made any crafts yet!). 

To help her countdown the remaining days, I designed a Free Printable Halloween Countdown Calendar.  Each day is shown with a pumpkin.  When you get to the pumpkin patch at the bottom, Halloween will really be here!


To make your own Halloween Countdown Calendar, download your Free Printable Halloween Countdown Calendar.  Then, print it out and trim.  If you need some ideas for printing your designs, check out our printing tips here.

Once you’ve printed the design, you can simply hang it on the refrigerator for the kids to mark off each day.  Use a fun marker, pen or even let them add a Halloween sticker to cover the pumpkin.  (Stickers are considered gold in our house and this was my favorite choice.) (affiliate)

Another creative idea is to place the calendar into a pretty frame.  Then you can mark off each day with a window dry erase marker or a chalk marker. (affiliates) This way the markings will wipe off at the end of the countdown and you can use again next year.

Unfortunately, we have nowhere to display such a crafty project, so we’re sticking with our refrigerator.  Plus, I wasn’t really in the mood to dig out a frame…  But, it’s a great idea and might work well for your space.


You can download your Free Printable Halloween Countdown Calendar here.  And don’t forget, October 1st is this SATURDAY, so you’ll need to print it out and hang it up by then!
