Halloween Countdown Activity

Fall is in full swing, and Halloween is right around the corner! If you have little ones anything like my son, I'm sure they are anxiously awaiting treats and wearing costumes. This was the first year that I've been asked on a daily basis "Is it Halloween yet". I guess buying his costume last week and seeing me prep fun decorations has sparked his excitement. Well I happened to stumble across the perfect solution to his anxious anticipation on Pinterest...a Halloween countdown! Thank you Detail-Oriented Diva for sharing this great printable that can be downloaded here. DSC_0205

To make this a learning opportunity for my son as well, I made the numbers traceable for him since he is working on tracing and writing letters and numbers in school. He was so excited to trace the number 23 and be assured that candy and costumes day is on the way. For 1 night I didn't hear "Is it Halloween yet" lol.

I plan to have him trace the numbers every day until Halloween and keep this sign up near the candy station I'm currently prepping. Since he's a youngster, it was important for me to take the spook out of Halloween and focus on the fun of his favorite characters, costumes and of course candy! Therefore, his candy station will be themed around one of his favorites...Spider-Man. Here's a sneak peek of my progress so far. Check back on Halloween for the finished product.

NFL Super Bowl XLVIII

Football fans around the country are getting ready for Sunday's big game...Super Bowl XLVIII! If you plan on hosting a Super Bowl shindig and need some last minute ideas, check out the game day inspiration we shared in September here. This year, I'll be attending my in-laws Super Bowl soiree. Rather than coming empty handed, I'm bringing along a little football stadium flair...a mini concession stand adorned with Broncos and Seahawks accents. Check out my simple, yet festive stand below. If you are looking to create something similar for your party, grab some snacks, a tiered server and free Super Bowl printables from Printabelle...and viola, you're all set!
