31 Days of Halloween Activities

I love Halloween! - all the different costumes and decorations are always so creative, and seriously who doesn't like candy???  I try to make a big deal out of any holiday since having kids.  My mom always made every holiday special, no matter how small, so I decided to create a Halloween countdown.

I made 31 fun activities for kids and adults with ideas for each one coming. (So don't forget to check back often throughout September and October) And also a printable for the count down - a Halloween bucket list.
