Fall is in the air…..

Fall is definately here in Michigan.  The air is crisp, the pumpkins are out, and the leaves are falling…….. And with fall comes Halloween.  I love halloween, (in fact it’s tied for 1st place in my book with Christmas)  I love being scared as I walk through haunted houses, and waiting in line with a cup of hot apple cider, and all the fantastic crafts you can do with your kids.

Here are some fun easy crafts you can do with your kids

Milk Carton Haunted Houses

Use any size of carton, from an individual sized lunch carton to a half gallon. Cut out a door and some windows and cover entirely with black construction paper. Add some cute halloween stickers and glitter, maybe some candy corn and pumpkins, and you have an adorable decoration that your kids can help create. For an extra spooky touch, add an LED tealight. Create one house, or an entire village!

Boa Bats

These would make great porch decorations! Add glitter and use different colors of construction paper for a more playful effect.
