Halloween- Week 1

Halloween is such a fun time for my little ones.
They are so excited about it all.  Every day, I add a few more decorations for them to find in the house.  It's like a scavenger hunt every day!  Lots and lots of crafting too.

So, here's what we did last week.

Witch's Hat
This fun hat was created using a black paper plate.  
We decorated it using some foam shapes I got at the Dollar Store.

Witch's House
I printed these out and we glued them onto an old CD for stability.

Pumpkin Shakers
I folded some paper and the kids added beans to the inside before we sealed them and decorated them.

Spider Web
I cut some spider webs and the kids decorated them.

Envelope Ghost
We decorated a white envelope to make our little ghosts.

Ghost Windsock
I printed off this ghost and we made him into a windsock.

Little Pumpkins
We made these little pumpkins using this paper punch.

Silly Skeleton

Pumpkin Sticker Book

Happy Thanksgiving and Scarecrows

This post will be 2 weeks rolled into one post.
I have to say that I don't know how my weeks get so busy and I run out of time.
We sure have been keeping busy though.

Here in Canada, we celebrated Thanksgiving on Oct. 10th so this post will include some turkeys and some scarecrows too.

So, here's what we have been up to the last 2 weeks.

Turkey Wreath
This simple wreath was fun to create and the kids loved hanging them up at home.

Sitting Turkey
We made this simple sitting turkey by starting with a cone and then added all the features.

Turkey Hat
We made these fun hats to wear for Thanksgiving and learned our 'Turkey Song'.
(Sorry for the blurred pic, little people are always on the move.)

Turkey Song
A turkey is a funny bird,
His head goes wobble, wobble
The only thing that he can say is...
Gobble, Gobble, Gobble

Thanksgiving Placemats
I printed off this sheet and the kids coloured it and glued leaves around.  
I added some sticky plastic to make it waterproof.

Cornucopia Gluing

Pumpkin Dot Gluing

Paper Plate Scarecrow
We used the back side of the plate and glued on all the features.


Crow Puppets
I used an envelope as the base and the kids coloured and then glued on the features.


We finished off our week of scarecrows by making a life sized one.
It was so fun and the kids did all the stuffing with old paper.
They loved scrunching the paper up and then adding it into the clothes.  
They are all so proud of him and get excited to see him every morning as they come in the door.

Celebrating Fall

Last week we did a Fall theme, such a lovely time of year to discover.
My little ones find joy in playing in the leaves, collecting them and hearing them crunch when we walk over them.
Great time of year to also learn some colours and enjoy nature.

So, here's what we did last week.

Leaf Match Game
I printed off the leaves and the kids glued them onto a base.  
I did add a coloured dot as my little are so young and the dot would be helpful in matching.

Fall Banner
I printed off the leaves and the kids coloured them.  After I cut them out, we glued them onto the banner.

Fall Forest
We glued the trees together and added some punched out leaves.

Fall Suncatcher
I cut out a shadow of a squirrel and we made them into suncatchers.

Leaf Gluing
A great fine motor activity...good chance to learn some colours too.
