Going Batty

Here are some pics of some bats we made using little pumpkins,black paint and craft foam. Will has been so into projects lately and I am super excited -I never thought he would ever have the attention span for crafts. I still try to make sure they are small projects and usually we do them in stages.

Ween Party

A couple of weekends ago we had our first annual Halloween Party-or as Will calls it-a Ween Party! I had so much fun making decorations and even got brave enough to make the pinata. It had a few challenges along the way but I was happy with the way it turned out. One thing I wasn't expecting was how cold it was. I had planned a cool skeleton scavenger hunt to do in the dark but the kids were freezing. We were going to play "hot potato" with a severed hand but it scared some of the kids so we did it "old school" with an actual potato. Everyone had a good time even Will who for some reason refused to wear his Thomas the Train costume. We did,however, manage to get him to wear his dinosaur hoodie. You never can tell what is going on in the 3yr old brain! I already have some ideas planned for next year-I can't wait!!

Here is a little project Will and I did. This was a Martha Stewart kit that was on clearance for 3.00 at our local AC Moore. All the shapes were adhesive on the back so no messy glue to deal with! He turned out cute and Will had fun making him. What a great project for a rainy day-not to mention Halloween!
