100 Days Until Halloween! Crafts, Activities, Goodies and Scares

Those that love the summer time do not want to know how close we are to Halloween, Thanksgiving (127 days), or Christmas (155 days).  However, there are those of us that just do not care for the heat and humidity.  We live for cool autumn days, football, bonfires, and decorating for the seasons.  Creepy, crawly, scary and fun fall festivals.  Cooking, (or as in my case-eating) a great turkey with all the fixings.  Cursing as we string lights on an artificial tree but staring in awe at the completed project.  If you fall in to these categories, then make sure to follow along!

Here I'll be bringing you fun ideas for all of the holidays to try.  Some will be great Pinterest finds, links to other blogs, or some fun tutorials of my own.  My daughter shares my passion for Halloween, so she is always game to try new projects.  Here are some of my past craft attempts to get things started:

Halloween Countdown.13 Days of Halloween countdown fun for the kids.  Make foldable pumpkins (click on link for tutorial) and write a fun activity on the inside.  Examples would be going to a pumpkin patch, pumpkin carving, making a Halloween snack, decorating treat bags for school and so many more ideas.

Make a Mummy Bucket
Take a sand bucket from the summer, wrap in gauze or torn white fabric, add some googly eyes and you have a cute and creative personal candy bucket for the big night.

TP Pumpkins
So easy and inexpensive.  Simply wrap a roll of toilet paper with orange tissue, crunch up a used toilet paper roll for the stem and add some green ribbon for leaves.  The kids can do these too and even add a face to the pumpkin as well.


Just a sneak peak to get the countdown to the season started.  Stay tuned and please feel free to share any ideas or links below for me to check out.

Until next time,
