Okay, this is the deal. There are some things regarding Halloween that I excel at and other things that …well…I suck at. The good: fun, tasty recipes, such as the donuts or roasted pumpkin seeds you see above, that kids and adults alike can snack on while doing cute ghost-y and witch-y crafts. The bad: any sort of ghost-y or witch-y craft. I have mentioned before that I am severely sketchically-challenged. You haven’t heard that word before? I made it up. It means that I can’t draw my way out of a box, even if that box had a large opening on one side. It’s that bad. This doesn’t mean that I completely throw up my hands and avoid doing all crafts with my kids. Nope, it just means that I walk away from the project with my hands covered in glue, pieces of craft paper in my hair and art projects that are decidedly lopsided. My kids don’t care, of course. But I assure you that photos of those projects will never mar the pages of this blog. So, this is where you come in.
I need help. My kids want to make some fun Halloween food and crafts, and I am certain that they will never speak to me again if they have to endure one more paper pumpkin-making session. After cruising around numerous food and craft blogs, I know you have some amazing ideas to share. So, please help me redeem myself in the eyes of my children. Let them adorn me with the “Mum of the Year” award – because when I am doing your art projects with them, I will be taking full credit. Just a heads-up.
Please share/link up your Halloween recipes and craft ideas below. My kids and I will be forever grateful.
