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!



Last Minute Scare!

The family and I are in Omaha, Nebraska visiting friends for Halloween… Between the two families we have 6 boys! My friend Lynn had to orchestrate her son’s school party and so we came up with this easy craft for her to do with them. My boys stayed home and we made the craft as well… It’s super easy, super cute, and might kill some time before trick or treating… All you need is paper, Q-tips, and glue!

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!
