Mermaid Hair

When I was a girl, I used to love braiding my wet hair into lots of thin strands at night, and then un-braiding them in the morning to see what beautiful waves had formed while I was sleeping. Plus, how nice is it to wake-up with already-done hair?! I decided to continue the tradition with my daughter. Read below for instructions on how to achieve this easy hairstyle.

Repurposed Pumpkin Turkey

Somehow, the pumpkin my daughter painted for Halloween survived into November without being smashed or going bad.  To celebrate, I thought it would be fun to transform her gourd into a Thanksgiving decoration.  Thus, the Pumpkin Turkey was born.

Ghost Pops- The Hassle Free Version of a Halloween Classic

This is a cute, fun treat to pass out to treak-or-treaters or at a Halloween party.

For this craft, we used:

  • Tootsie Pops
  • Coffee Filters
  • Ribbon (1/8 inch width)
  • Googly eyes (we used the self-adhesive kind.)  You could also draw on the ghost faces with a marker
  • Shoe box (optional)

Itsy Spider Pumpkin Decorating Halloween Craft

This activity was inspired by googly eyes!  My daughter wanted to add lots of eyes to her mini pumpkin, so we decided to get out the pipe cleaners and turn it into a spider.  

For the eyes, we used googly eyes that have adhesive backs.  My daughter stuck the eyes onto the pompoms and they actually stayed on surprisingly well!  Then, I hot glued the pom poms to the pumpkin.  After that, my daughter wrapped the pipe cleaners around the stem of the pumpkin.  That's it!  Super easy.  Super cute.
