Halloween is Coming Calendar



1. Paint a huge tree on large window with washable glass paint. (you can do this on a big piece of paper and tape it to the wall if you prefer.
2. Make 31 leaves in autumn colors (red, orange, yellow) cut out of construction paper or old torn paper bags.
3. Use marker to number each leaf from 1 to 31.
4. Tape leaves to tree branches. (a small piece of double-stick tape is good)
5. Starting on October first take leaf number 1 and stick it at the bottom of the tree as if it has fallen. Each day find the current day's leaf and do the same. On Halloween there will be only one leaf left.

I use this craft to teach my daughter the days of the week in French. It can also be fun for young children to learn the days in English.

We had fun painting the tree. It's always a special treat to paint on something other than paper.
