EASY, Fun Jack O' Lanterns Made From ORANGES!


I started out my day trying to do something in the Halloween spirit with the kids. I thought of carving the pumpkins that we had just bought while visiting the pumpkin patch. We picked out pretty small pumpkins to carve into our very own Jack O' Lanterns. I figured the smaller the pumpkin, the less work it'll be. I have never carved a pumpkin before and was pretty excited to try it out now that I have kids to share that experience with. 

As I sat down and stared at these cute, perfectly shaped pumpkins, I realized that they looked beautiful as they were. In tact. I glanced over at a bag of HUGE oranges on the kitchen counter and the rest is as follows...and to my surprise, which I can only guess, was MUCH easier and less of a mess.

T-Shirt Art at Home! *NO PAINT NEEDED*

Bloody and creepy. Here is a fun activity to do for Halloween. This is intended for older kids or adults. I did this for my toddler but I did not want to scare him too much so I placed the image on the back of his shirt. At least he can scare others but not himself!

Things you will need:
  1. Black shirt
  2. Bleach
  3. Water
  4. Cheap paint brush
  5. Piece of cardboard

SPOOKY DIY Ghosts for Halloween...

As Summer is suddenly gone, Fall, is boldly taking front and center stage. Leaves have already begun to shed and I immediately feel the mood of all the upcoming fun holidays...sigh, I embrace it. This past weekend I got into the Halloween 'spirit' and made a few crafts with the kids...I mostly used things that I already had at home. I made SPOOKY hanging ghosts! Maybe they were a little too spooky for the kids...
