I love Halloween. Love. It.

I love Christmas more but don’t like the crafting aspect as much – weird.

There’s just something about making ghosts and bats and spiders that makes me happy so the other day we made some creepy crawlies while the kiddos had a Professional Development Day off school.

See how happy Molly is about getting her picture taken? Haha!

Here’s the three of ours together (Poppy had already taken hers home):

I went with regular googly eyes but the kids wanted coloured ones, of course! I’ve almost run out of my round coloured eyes but found some oval ones the other day (for you local peeps who have been asking, I found them at the dollar store in Mount Pearl!) and I think they look pretty awesome! We obviously used egg cartons, black paint, and googly eyes. For the wings I had some sticky back felt but paper would work just as well.

We also made spiders but I only have a picture of mine:

spiderIsn’t he cute? I had the idea and wanted to make him *now* but had no pipe cleaners so we painted wooden skewers and broke them up for legs – I actually like how it looks that way! He and Mister Bat:

bathave become two of my faves! Now, to come up with a new ghost idea….
