Halloween Countdown Chain and How it will Save your Sanity!

Halloween Countdown Chain

You’ll love my Halloween Countdown Chain SVG file if you’ve ever been in this situation!

Mom, is it Halloween today? Can I wear my costume? Can I go trick-or-treating today? How many days until I can wear my costume? I just want candy. Mom, Mom, MOM! I decided I want to be something else instead.

1 hour later: Mom, is Halloween today?…

I have had this conversation so many times (today)! It makes me want to pull my hair out!

Halloween Countdown Chain

Here is an age-old solution that I remember my mom and fun teachers making for me when I was little! It is a countdown chain! Everyone loves to rip a loop off the bottom and get just a little closer to something fun! When my kids ask me questions about when something is, I ask them how many loops are left! They get to practice counting and I get to clean in peace (for like 3 seconds)!

I wanted to make my Halloween chain a little special, so I added some bat wings and cut it out with my Silhouette Cameo 3 (the Cameo 4 is coming out and I can hardly wait)!

Here is a video and the template is on my Etsy shop, so you can cut some on your Silhouette or cut them out by hand. You get a Pinterest Mom of the Year award if you cut them out by hand!
