How to use your Halloween Advent calendar
Although this is called a “Halloween countdown calendar,” the numbers count up like on a normal calendar. When I searched for similar items on Pinterest and Etsy, this style appeared much more popular.
Using this calendar is fun and easy for your child. Each day they get to mark off the day’s date and watch Halloween get closer and closer! You can make the page single use or reusable.
For a single use, your child can mark each day with a marker, crayon, dot marker, sticker, or stamp.
For a reusable calendar, slide each printed page into a secure page protector or dry erase pocket. I prefer heavy duty, “secure” page protectors because they’re easy to organize in a 3-ring binder and they have a flap to keep the pages from accidentally sliding out. The thicker plastic also holds up well to coloring, writing, and erasing. “Regular” page protectors wrinkle easily after being used a couple of times.
- Keep contents secure in the protective sleeve with convenient top flap; perfect for holding nonstandard size papers and important items
- Get a crisp, clear view of the contents of your documents with diamond clear page protectors featuring a polished finish for high clarity
- Ensure your documents stay protected with long-lasting super heavyweight sheet protectors for all of your frequently referenced items
After you place the page in a page protector or dry erase pocket, your child can write on it with their favorite dry or wet erase marker, or an appropriate pencil like the Stabilo Woody pencils highlighted in this post with free dinosaur coloring pages. At the end of the season, just stash the page away in a folder for use next year!
You’ll need to be careful with kids, but you an also make pages reusable by placing them in a picture frame, as demonstrated in this post with a free printable daily intentions page and instructions on a DIY dry erase board. You need a frame with a glass front to write on, which is why you need to be extra careful with kids.
