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!



Cute and easy Halloween Decorations…

25 Oct




9.5×11 orange construction paper (you can use bigger paper for bigger pumpkins)

Black, Green, or Brown construction paper for stem (and face if you want)

Glue/Glue Stick

Stapler (or glue again)


Cut one inch strips out of the orange construction paper.  For my preschoolers I first fan folded the paper and then let them cut along the folded lines.  This seemed to work pretty well for them.  The bigger pumpkins were fan folded the “long” way and the smaller pumpkins the “short” way.

Take the one inch strips and lay them out like a “sun” making sure that the ends of each of the orange pieces are on top of each other.  Glue these ends together.  Pinch them together to make sure they are stuck.  Then curve the other pieces up again so the tops of the paper are overlapping at the top.  I then staple these together so that they are certain to stay together.

To add the stem I just folded one end of the paper and had them glue it to the top. We then added the faces, pom pom balls etc.. with glue!  EASY PEEZY!  Here is a close up of one of the ones my three year old made.  You can see that he did the cutting, glueing etc..  It’s not “perfect” but it is more adorable than perfect in my eyes…
