Our most popular Disneyland countdown chain is our classic Mickey Mouse version and this one is just that, but with a fun Halloween twist!
Our Disney Halloween Countdown Chain is full of festive Disney flare and will get anyone excited for their trip to Disneyland during Halloween Time. It’s as easy as 1-2-3 – literally! Each day you take off a link as you countdown to your vacation. But first, you’ll need to print it off and assemble it. This is a fun activity that the whole family can help with as they anticipate their not-so-scary fall getaway.
Gather your supplies and let the countdown chain assembling begin:
- 2 Sheets of Black Cardstock
- 1 Sheet of Orange Cardstock
- 1 Sheet of Yellow Cardstock
- 1 Sheet of Green Cardstock
- White Foam Sticky Paper or White Paper
- Glue Stick
- Hole Puncher
- 5 Inches of Ribbon
- Disney Halloween Countdown Chain Template
Next, print off the template here and cut out both pieces.
With a pen or pencil, trace the Mickey Ears Template onto the black cardstock (fitting four to a page) and then fold and crease the ears so they stand up. Then, cut 1 ¼ inch strips out of the orange and yellow cardstock and 1 inch strips out of the green cardstock.
Begin linking together each piece and stapling each one as you go. Start with the green strip and staple, link in the black Mickey ears strip onto that and staple it too. Then link the orange strip, staple, yellow strip, staple, and repeat the process until each strip (including the Mickey ears strips) are all linked together.
After that, cut some “buttons” out of regular white paper or white sticky foam paper. If you go the regular paper route, a trick is to use a hole puncher for the buttons. This will create the perfect circle size in seconds. You will use a glue stick to paste on the buttons easily to each orange strip.
If you go the sticky foam paper route, you will need to cut small circles with scissors and then simply stick them onto the orange strips. You will love the detailed touch the buttons add to your chain countdown. It will make it look like Mickey’s Halloween outfit and bring to life the Disney feel.
