  • hand spiders..... Paint child's hand one at a time with blach paint and then push down on paper, palms together to make the body and little fingers out for the legs...let dry and then glue on google eyes.

    Footsie ghosts... Trace child's foot on white paper or white thin foam, cut out . Glue google eyes on the heel, so the toes are the bottom of the ghost and then draw on a mouth. Put a hole up at the top of the heel and put string or yarn to hang up. You can also let them decorate with glitter or colors.

    Be sure to put the child's name and age on the back for your memories.

  • Glass jar(Mayo or Pickle, maybe) paint it white with a ghost face on it in black. Put a candle inside.

    Pet Pumpkin Rocks:
    Here's what you need:
    1 can each Orange and Green Spray paint
    Various sizes and shapes medium sized rocks for the pumpkins
    Smaller rocks for the stems
    Sharpie Permanent Marker
    E6000 adhesive
    To get started, wash and scrub your rocks well and let them dry. Then paint them their respective colors. (This was the hardest part...waiting for them to dry!)
    After they are dry, use your Sharpie to "carve" the pumpkins. It's ok if your rocks aren't perfectly round. Just use their shape to inspire your carvings. The pixelated face is one my husband did, see how the rock is almost a rectangle. And the happy toothy grin on the one next to it was done on a different side of the rock.

    These craft ideas were taken from the cafemom group: A Crafty Mommy
