As most of you know I am a mommy to little girls ages three and four! Now that fall has started so has the endless questions of, “when is Halloween?” and “When is Santa coming?”. So I decided to make something fun to help them count down the days till Halloween by making a little jar filled with the correct number of candies to do the 31-day countdown. We are on day two and they are thrilled every afternoon to get their little taste of what is to come at the end of the month!
In celebration of owning my Cricut for 2 years, I decided to use one of my fav carts and the VERY FIRST EVER cart I used, Simply Charmed! It will ever be close to my heart because of that!
Thanks for sharing a piece of “is it Halloween yet” pie with me!
