Witch Craft :) LOL

28 Sep


My boys are completely ready for Halloween.  They’ve been discussing costumes, party favors and decorations.  In true S Brother’s style they’ve started making their own crafty decorations for Halloween.  This project was inspired by the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Episode, The Wizard of Dizz…  Of course you can see why :).  My big boys have seen the Wizard of Oz, but my 2 year old has not so we have to go with the Mickey Version when he’s around…


Here’s the Scoop:

You’ll Need:

Construction Paper

Fabric Scraps

Buttons or Puff Balls



Ribbon or Noodles for bows



Depending on the age of your children you’ll need to cut out the dress, fabric patch and shoes.  My older boys were able to do this themselves.  Glue these things on so the dress is at the top of the page.  Let your younger children do the gluing if they are able.  The rest is pretty simple, glue on the bows, buttons, patch etc..  Draw the legs of your witch and TADA… You have yourself the KIND or Wicked witch of the East… or what ever you want to name her…  🙂  What joy this time of the year brings to our little ones!



Halloween Spider Project

29 Oct

We are making these in my son’s class for the Halloween party…  I think they are so easy, so cute, and so fun!  If you’re looking for something last minute, this is for you!


construction paper for background (any “halloween” color, I chose purple, but I’ve also done this with orange paper)

black construction paper for spider

tempera paint in coordinating halloween color ( I chose orange, but purple would be fun on orange paper)


google eyes

lid to a box or tub

DIRECTIONS:  Remember, kids can do most of these steps on their own, it makes their projects very adorable.  Sutton and Shaeffer did most of this work themselves (I obviously prepped the paint and supplies), but they folded, glued, rolled, painted etc.. on their own!

Squeeze a small amount of paint into a small bowl or cup

Put the marble in the paint and roll it around until it is covered

Put the construction paper in the box lid

Place the marble in the box (on top of the construction paper) and let your child roll the marble around making a ‘web’ like design

You may need to re dip the marble a couple of times to get the desired web design

Set your picture aside to dry

Trace something circular on black construction paper for the spider’s body, I used a jar of salsa 🙂 that was out from lunch!

Cut 8 half inch strips of black paper for the legs

Accordion fold/fan fold the strips of black paper so the legs are wiggly

Glue the legs onto the body of the spider

Glue the entire body and legs onto the web you painted earlier.

Add the google eyes


Skeleton Project w/ Q-Tips

9 Oct

Last night I met with the two other room mothers for my son’s Kindergarten class.  I love that this school has “room mother’s”.  We were trying to decide on some fun but easy crafts to do at the class Halloween party… This was one of the ones we decided on and I’m so glad.  I think they are just adorable and so so so easy (and cheap) to make.  Perfect for a group of little spooky’s.

To make:
1. Cut out a skeleton head and draw a face!
2. Glue the head to a black piece of paper and then let your child use the glue to stick on the q-tips. We tried two different methods and both worked fine. We put the glue directly on the paper and stuck the q-tip to it and then we also put the glue directly on the q-tip. Both methods worked well!
3. For the phalanges break the q-tips in half. It’s easier to bend them then to cut them!
