Halloween countdown for you to print today

We have already given you an Halloween advent calendar for you to use to build up the excitement for the big day. However, we know that some people aren’t into the crafting that is required to create the advent, so we have an alternative that you can just choose to print out and GO with: the Halloween countdown chart.

How to use the Halloween countdown

This is the simplest thing ever – we promise!

  • Start your countdown on the 19th October,
  • There is a character, or coloring in, for every day until you reach the Cauldron and Trick or Treat on the 31st October, when it’s time for HALLOWEEN FUN,
  • Print out the sheets, decide whether you want to do a countdown by crossing off or coloring in, and then use that sheet,
  • Enjoy your Halloween countdown with KiddyCharts!

Sometimes we know you just want to build up the day, but without too much hassle beforehand, so this countdown to Halloween is a much, much better way of doing this for the kids, and therefore for you.

We have given you both a coloring in version of the Halloween countdown and a cross off version. That means you can up the ante a little with the kids without too much effort.

Show me what the Halloween countdown actually looks like

The first two sheets within the set are the cover, and then the instructions – just to remind you how to do things if you have stepped away from the computer.

We then have two different designs for the coloring-in version, and the crossing-off version. We just thought it would be nice to add a little variety to the countdown for you all.

Just to help you out, we have the following on the colored/crossing-off version:

  • 5 black cats with the numbers of 12 down to 8 in the countdown,
  • 4 spiders, that include the 7 to 4 days,
  • Witches hats for the numbers 1-3, and finally
  • A big cauldron for the big day itself – with Trick or Treat on it, or course!

If your kids wanted to – I guess they might like to add spooky stickers over the numbers, or even color them in to help with their countdown, either alongside crossing-off, or doing instead of this?

For the coloring-in version:

  • 12 – caulton with a very cute pumpkin and cat,
  • 11 – cat in a vampire coat: who knows if they are a vampire cat or not?
  • 10 – Cheeky pumpkin,
  • 9 – Cat on a broomstick wearing a witches hat,
  • 8 – Bat in full flight: we think…,
  • 7 – Winking cat with a witches hat on (can you tell we like cats?)
  • 6 – Spooky skull: the is the scariest one, we promise,
  • 5 – Confused cat with a witches / wizard’s hat on. Probably a wizard as its not moons and stars on it, but it doesn’t matter really, does it,
  • 4 – Witch on her broomstick (she finally got it back from the cat),
  • 3 – Cat-bat type thing…probably a cat wearing a bat costume we would imagine,
  • 2 – Bat hanging upside down from the branch of a spooky tree,
  • 1 – Ghost: because it wouldn’t be Halloween without one and for
  • 31st October – Another cauldron with Trick or Treat on it!

Lots of fun things to color in, or put Halloween stickers over, or even do both!
