*ALL* the Halloween!


Halloween Decor Ideas

All the yums. This would be cute at a party.
Ooohh, a caution wreath!
Or an eyeball one!
Floating dresses strung on lights.
Meeseeks pumpkins! 
Use Sharpies and Dollar Tree tap lights to make spooooky eyes.
Frame a spider web!

Glowing pumpkins made of tea lights and ping pong balls from Paging Fun Moms!



Halloween Classroom Ideas

This teacher used small 3x3 canvases from Amazon for the kiddos the make Spookley the Square Pumpkin. The book is a wonderful story about diversity!



Make pretzel broom stick treats with pretzels and pencils. From Hip2Save.

Painted pine cones and green pipe cleaners make nice Fall bouquets!
Make a Feed the Monsters literacy center! Photo from KinderbyKim.
Find pliable leaves and show students how to turn them into flowers. Pretty.

Turn leaves into foxes!

They also have this amazing leaf paper plate craft HERE. 


Make an interactive (you can change it with the seasons!) and have students add prefixes, suffixes and word roots to it.

For younger ones, make color-mixed hand print leaves for a bulletin board tree display.

Chart Fall with students...
From Grade1 Reading Corner

Cut up paper towel rolls and have students make fall trees with paint. From Crafty Morning.

Take students on a leaf walk. Then return to the classroom to graph the leaves found.

Turn out the lights and make some shadow puppets.


Halloween Costume Ideas

Be a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree!

Be a rainstorm! Found at Make It Love It.

Aw, Rainbow Fish.

Easy! Cardboard box, construction paper and black tape.

A good costume for four.

I would wear this all year, personally. The Very Hungry Caterpillar! 
You can use felt for the fruit and print the characters onto iron-on
transfer paper! Cool.

These nails could match!


This would be cool to make for a bug costume or fairy one. Love the felt flowers.

Make a tutu dress and give it a Slimer face

Adorable Camping Costumes

Wonder Woman from the DC Bombshells/1940s look

Be a melting ice cream cone!

Or make your own jewelry props using gold hot glue!

FallING for Fall


Fall in upon us! Yes. So ready for cooler weather. I am ready to wear my favorite cowgirl boots. And my soft jeans. I am mainly excited to be able to walk outside without sweating or being tortured by bugs!! I did try a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks. Y'all know about how I feel about pumpkin spice. I tried very hard to like it, but I ended up calling it a Pumpkin Spice Crappe (no offense to those that love it). I just have trouble getting excited about coffee. I think I am the only person on the planet that really does not drink it. But I am probably an alien since I am not a fan of chocolate, either.

We have been busy hanging out at the fair.


This was a large fried gummy bear my son ate. I snuck a bite and it tasted like a pie, surprisingly.
We went to Cloud City to walk inside the installation art exhibit.

This is probably the first year we have taken forever to decorate for Halloween (yes, I know it is still September!). I plan on remedying that this weekend. Already got my boxes out of the garage!  We usually do inside in September, and then do the outside stuff near the first of October. We are just big Halloweeners.

I do have my front door wreath out. Check it!

We got some inflatable eyes to put on the outside of our house. I need to find my fishing string for them. My son is really into skeletons that are not creepy but more comical. So now we own a skeleton in a tux, of all things! 
I very badly need to start working on my little scarecrow, Harrison's costume. We found a large crow to sew onto his straw hat. I bought him a flannel shirt while thrifting and I plan to cut little patches to sew onto it. And we will use yarn instead of hay to line the sleeves and the hat and stuff. He has pretty sensitive skin like his mama and hay irritates it. I have to say my favorite costume ever of his was one he put together himself--the year he was a mad scientist! He was adorable.

I made a little tutu to wear almost like the one in this picture, so I can be a scaregirl (I guess that is a scarecrow girl lol).

See? This is how mine turned out. 


I'm very obsessed with tutu costumes. If we had a little girl in this family, there would be a closet full of 'em!


I am slowly working on my Snow White costume. Oh my gosh! Check out my poison apple for it. I am not sure if I will make it into a necklace or something because I want it to be alongside my costume but not something I have to hold all day since I will be wearing it at the library.


I want to share all the awesome Fall/Halloween finds and ideas I have seen lately online...
If you don't feel like carving pumpkins, spray paint 'em! Look at these cool candy corn designs.

Or spray paint leaves and glue them onto your pumpkins!

Make a photo pumpkin! Really you could decoupage anything on them.


I love this villain wreath idea!

This crazy cat lady costume is the bestest! My mom was this one year (hi, mom!).

Harrison and I are so making some yarn pumpkins soon! 

Look at this super cool Mac 'N Cheese costume!!! His mom made it out of a laundry basket and paper towel rolls. Creative!

And you know it's Fall when this happens to you...
