Halloween Countdown

 I love Halloween and the anticipation of a countdown always adds to the excitement for the spooky day. While I've always created a countdown for Christmas, I've never done one for Halloween. I decided to create a little haunted Halloween village this year for our daughter to enjoy. 

Instead of the traditional palette of orange and black, I thought I'd shake things up a bit and add some mint and pink to the project. You could create a haunted village for all thirty-one days or just do a few days. I thought ten would be a perfect number for this countdown. 

I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine to cut out the entire village. Simply search "houses" in Cricut Design Space and several fun ones will pop up. These little houses are perfect because they double as mini favor boxes to put in little treats and trinkets.  

I cut out several bats and attached them to the houses using glue dots or you could use any kind of adhesive you'd like! 

Using your cutting machine, cut out as many numbers as you'd like for your countdown. I liked the stars and pumpkins so I cut numbers into those fun shapes. Next, attach the pumpkin and star numbers to the haunted houses. 

 Fill each haunted house box with little Halloween surprises like erasers, squishes and treats that your kids will love. Now your little haunted Halloween village is all ready to go!

CoComelon Party with Jazwares

 This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Jazwares for Jazwares. All opinions are 100% mine.

If your toddler is completely obsessed with CoComelon (whose isn't?!) then this party is for you! With CoComelon's happy songs, cute characters and bright colors, it's easy to see why it's such a huge hit with the little ones.

Today I'd love to share our CoComelon themed birthday party complete with party hats, cupcakes and adorable CoComelon mini vehicles by Jazwares that make the cutest party favors!

I always say that it's not a party unless party hats are involved! Create party hats out of paper and print out CoComelon images. Adhere the images to the hat using glue and these cuties are all ready to go!

Using brightly colored cardstock, cut out goodie bags for little party guests. They'll love seeing their favorite CoComelon characters on their bags. Fill them up with treats, stickers, bubbles and anything else you know they'll love.

Cupcakes are a must and these colorful confections are too cute with images of JJ, TomTom, and YoYo hanging out on top of the frosting and sprinkles.

Ready for the cutest party favor ever? Little ones will be in CoComelon heaven with these CoComelon Mini Vehicles by Jazwares driven by their favorite CocoMelon characters. The CocoMelon Mini Vehicles come in 4 fun and unique styles such as a Fire Truck, GarbageTruck, Ice Cream Truck, and even a yellow School Bus! The free-wheeling feature lets your child zoom each figure all around the room. The party guests will have a blast racing their vehicles around in a friendly competiton.

Create tiny 4"x4"x4" ABC favor boxes out of paper and place the CoComelon Mini Vehicles inside. These mini vehicles will be a huge hit with the tiny party-goers and can be played with long after the party is over.

For a fun and engaging party activity, bring out the CoComelon Musical Keyboard! You can press the square button and the keyboard plays clips of the CoComelon ABC Song and the CoComelon Music song! We played musical chairs and hot potato and the kids loved singing along to the songs. Once the games were over, the little ones loved taking turns making up their own music on the keyboard.

The mini party guests loved this bright and colorful CoComelon party and I hope you found some fun ideas to create a party for your own CoComelon fan!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
