Halloween Odds and Ends
Between the costume sewing, baking, helping with my sister's wedding, and general busyness of life, I have not posted much since, well, since Mr. Four was born. I have tried to do some fun Halloween and fall activities with my little Mr.'s, and I've even managed to sneak in a few crafts of my own. Here's a brief rundown of some of them.
I love the way my yarn wreath turned out. I wasn't sure if it would end up a success or a huge craft fail, but I love the colors and the clean look of it. Now I want to do more for other seasons.
My boys had a great time making these spiders. They are just the right touch of bright and mildly creepy for our decor.
We made candy corn sugar cookies. Mr. One and his friend cut the triangles, and sprinkled the cookies. It was a fun treat to do together. The tutorial is from Our Best Bites, using their sugar cookie dough with almond extract. They were very yummy!
I made up this simple sensory tub activity for the boys, found here. They had lots of fun searching for the ghosts and shouting, "Boo! I found you!"
I can't wait for tomorrow's fun and trick or treating! Luckily the force was with me in making our family's costumes this year (wink). Pictures here in a few days.
