On October 1 we spent the afternoon decorating for Halloween. The tree is tied with purple, orange and black strands of tulle, spiderwebs harbor in corners and a giant Ghoul waits in the corner. Slowly we add to the collection to add to our Halloween festivities. This year we added Pottery Barn Kids Halloween Countdown Calendar.
The Halloween Countdown Calendar is adding so much fun to our celebration. It hasn’t replace the kiddos paper chain (they’re die hard paper chain makers), but it is adding to the excitement and makes our house look far more festive.
The quality of this is impeccable. As we were filling the pockets with treats and tricks, a couple of the items (25 cent boxes of Hot Tamales) were just wide and thick enough that the kiddos were forcing them into the pocket. My heart sank because I thought the felt would stretch out of shape and turn to a thinness that made me shudder. Nope! The kiddos forced the boxes in and the felt held up…so did the stitching.
For an additional $7, the Calendar can be personalized with your name. I love it!
We had a blast filling the pockets. We have a mixture of treats and tricks. Most of it is candy, but some of it is haunts like: “Visit the Corn Maze”, “Find your way out of the Tunnel of Terror”, “Take a Ride with a Witch at Gardner Village”. And just because it’s Halloween, which calls for a few tricks we’ve included notes that say things like, “Clean your room and when your done, ask your Mummy to “treat” you.” or “Raking Leaves is never fun, however, when you’re done, Dad will take you, if you dare, to the pumpkin patch for a scare”. We’ve even incorporated crafts into the pockets. The kiddos have found the clues to a scavenger hunt to make Mummy Treat Containers, Tootsie Pop Ghosts and S’mores in a Jar for their teachers.
The days are dying fast, get The Pottery Barn Kids Halloween Countdown Calendar right now for just $44.99. There’s a whole lot of fun waiting.
