Halloween Advent Calendar

Oh friends, can you believe it's taken us half of September for the HOLIDAY SNOBS to do a Halloween post?  Well, I can tell you that Halloween has been pretty much been in the back of my mind for about a month!  The only thing that gets me through the end of pool season is thinking about getting ready for it!  It's time to start projects and shopping to be ready to decorate!

I saw a cute Christmas advent idea on pinterest that was originally from Katherine Marie Photography.  (Her image is copyrighted so you really need to head over to her blog to see it!)  But I thought Halloween really warranted this idea as well!  I had a few books already but needed a few more to even have 12 for a countdown.  I found more at a used bookstore, and I'm sure there's still some at thrift stores.  So hopefully this post is in time for you to score some at a deal!



 I wrapped each Halloween book in wrapping paper and a bow.  I made tags for each present with numbers 1 thru 12.




Another cute idea to start prepping for now?  Head here to see it!

I've done book advent calendars for Christmas but never thought of doing one for other holidays! Kids love these and it's fun to see them get excited about books :)
