Our Spooky Halloween Tree
Last month we painted Our October Tree, and it was so much fun I decided to make it an ongoing art project. While exploring outside, we always notice the colors of the leaves and how they are changing. We love to collect the fallen leaves (in lieu of the flowers that have stopped blooming due to the frigid temps), especially the red and orange ones. So pretty!
Halloween Playlist, For Grown Ups
Halloween brings out the kid in most of us. Well, it brings out the kid in me that's for sure! I love everything Halloween, the sights and smells, the movies and treats. But one thing I don't love is the music of Halloween. Super cheesy, really annoying and not something I want to hear, even just once a year. So, I've compiled my favorite songs that have spooky sounds or ghoulish lyrics. Throw this on the speaker and your party will suck a little less. Here it is, your Grown-Up Halloween Playlist:
This is amazing!
Whether your little monster wants to dress up as a princess or a pirate this Halloween, some Face Paint can complete and customize any costume. What could be better? Enter: Homemade Face Paint, by Sherry at Personal Creations. This stuff is awesome, and super easy. And the best part, you already have everything you need, right in your kitchen cabinets. Yay!
Simple Halloween Treats
It's the most gruesome time of year, full of tricks and more importantly, treats! Around September-ish I suddenly feel the urge to bake. So any opportunity to make something for a special reason is super exciting! For inspiration, I scrolled through my Halloweenie board on Pinterest.
This year, our Kindergartner got to attend her first Halloween Howl at her school, so of course I jumped on the chance to bake some treats to show off.
Festive Fall Tree Painting
So this one is super easy. Easy set up, easy clean up, easy fun! We wanted to make some fall decorations, and one of our favorite elements of fall is the foliage. Watching the leaves turn bright reds and yellows and oranges, and anticipating the day that the first leaf drifts to the ground, so exciting! And the best part, leaf piles!!!
