Fall is has finally arrived, the leaves are changing, the weather is cooler and we are happily decorating our home for Halloween!
The kids love have the chance to craft anytime they can but they especially love Halloween crafts! This year, we turned to our friends at Oriental Trading, once again, to stock up on the crafts and the kids couldn’t wait to get started.
The kids kicked off our Halloween projects by making some fun Peanuts magnets for our refrigerator.
In the end, our refrigerator ended up covered in them so we were kind to share with other family members but we did keep some for ourselves.
I love these magnet kits because they are so easy for the kids to put together since they are all peel and stick.
Painting Pumpkin Fun
Once the magnets were done, it was time to get messy and paint some pumpkins. This year we decided to paint ceramic pumpkins that are also tea light holders as well as some wooden stand up pumpkins.
We like to use cotton swabs when painting because they are just the right size for the kids, we can have one in every color and when we are done, we can just toss them in the trash.
The kids really enjoyed painting everything and even painted multiple items. Once our battery operated tea lights arrive, our Halloween display of pumpkins will be complete!
Of course, this year I had to get a little something for the house that makes me happy and I found that in this awesome light up wreath for our front door!
