crafting for Halloween
October is here...which means it's officially not too early to do some Halloween crafting. Last year we scored a couple of spooky foam kits on clearance at Target. They were originally $2 each, but marked down to 10 cents or something ridiculous so we grabbed a couple and saved them for this year.
It's nice to bake a cake from scratch, but sometimes it's more convenient to just use a cake mix. I feel the same way about crafting. Sure, it's great if we can be original and make something one of a kind, but these kits made everything easy peasy and the kids received satisfaction just the same. And for me, no planning and no mess to clean.
They were SO EXCITED to decorate the house with their creations. Like Luke said in one of his comments, our house looks a little bit like a preschool.
