These are some crafty activities we have completed lately. She got the ghost and pumpkin hanging from the light at her school. We made spiders and pumpkins from an egg carton and pipe cleaner. We got this idea from Family Fun Magazine. I love the arts and crafts and spooky food ideas from this website.Cadence's spiders were so cute. I let her cut her own legs, glue on the eyes and do almost everything. The eyes are lopsided. Her spider has 5 legs with one being very long. (She made another spider equally as cute, but gave it, with a thank you note she wrote, to our neighbors Calli and Kevin because they gave her some Hallowen barettes, paper and a pen.) Sometimes I am tempted to help her do her projects "right," but that is what makes them cute. They look like a two-yr-old made them. I also want to encourage her creativity and independence- not stiffle it.
Cadence made this skeleton with Dad at Lowe's childrens workshop last week. She took it to church because she likes it so much. Its little arms and legs move.We will attempt to do more fun activities to fill our days and create masterpieces, memories and fun!
