13 Nights of Halloween

A few years ago I made a storytelling board for Ten Timid Ghosts and the kids loved the suspense of it. I wanted to do something new, so I found the perfect story: The 13 Nights of Halloween. I bought a black canvas board from the craft store and drew a haunted mansion with 13 windows. I can now either read/sing his book, or sing the lyrics as I draw each curtain. Lots of laughs ensue!

Using Guy Vasilovich’s lyrics, I drew all the ghosts and goblins from the story using metallic Sharpie markers. It really pops!

Here’s a detail of one of the windows. After the drawings were completed I added clear Velcro tabs to hold the “windows” on.

Here is the haunted mansion with all the curtains drawn.
