October – one of my VERY favorite seasons! The highs have dipped down into the 50’s, we had our first frost, the leaves are finally changing colors and I have pulled out ALL my October favorites. Of course, all the festive fall fun couldn’t happen without some serious behind-the-scenes October magic (a.k.a, adult work).
If you are drowning in pumpkin & spice, nervously eyeing Halloween costume patterns and a full October schedule, feverishly searching for sugar-free, classroom-approved Halloween treats, or just want a few minutes of peace & quiet to enjoy the season yourself – we’ve got you.
Our DIY Halloween mini doodle books have 9 illustrated mini pages to be colored in or completed, 9 different book cover options, and a sheet of blank mini pages.
FYI – we just added a mini Thanksgiving doodle
They’re the perfect size to pack up for a school craft or restaurant dinner, would make the *most* fun party favors or activity to go with a Halloween movie marathon, and are awesome sugar-free treats! No time to bind into a book? No problem! Just print out the pages, cut them apart and throw into a bag with some crayons for easy entertainment anywhere!
