Have you noticed that the week before Halloween has become almost as excitingly busy as Christmas?
At Christmas it is the commercials on the TV, but now my kids keep seeing things like Skeleton's on people's lawn, and spiderwebs in people's tree's and asking over and over "Can we get that"?
Secretly I want to buy all of the spooky things...but I have to say no because I am the mom.
Here is a Halloween craft you will want to do with your kidlets! I am positive that 99% of you will have the ingredients to do it today if you want to!
What you need:
What to do:
1. Mix your food coloring with milk!
Our paint recipe: 5 drops food coloring to 1/4 Cup milk
For Orange: 4 drops yellow, 1 drop red
For Purple: 4 drops red, 1 drop blue
For Green: 4 drops yellow, 1 drop blue
2. Paint your heart out!
I tried to inspire a Halloween theme,
but my little Cowboy ruined my pumpkin. :(
3. Toast your bread!
If your child's bread canvas gets too soggy, you can push your toast down twice. :)
4. Eat your toast!
We buttered ours because we like it that way.
Disclaimer: You must monitor your children if you don't want an entire loaf of bread painted in less than 5 minutes. Try giving them each a limit of 1-2 slices and then put the bread away. :)
I would like to make a "toast" to Halloween!
