We have been working on our ocean and theme and one of the things we have recently made was a paper mache whale. Both my kids are working on an ocean theme, however my daughter was working on the Blue Whale. I had my son make one as we are working on sensory issues. He does not like gooey things and he doesn’t like his hands sticky.
While I was cleaning out the craft closet I noticed that I had bought felt but never used. See I have thoughts that come in my head and I buy the craft materials for it and then I end up forgetting. I had black and orange felt and thought that would be perfect to make a felt pumpkin kit for my daughter for Halloween.
To make your own pumpkin face kit you will need:
- 1 piece of orange felt
- 1 piece of black felt
The leaves are starting to slowly fall off the trees here. They are slowly starting to change their colors. In a couple weeks we should be at our peak fall colors. I was hoping to find some read leaves but no such luck so we used what we had. If you have leaves that are starting to fall this would be the perfect craft for fall. It didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to as I let my daughter go to town on the gluing. I think red would have added a little more color too! So may another craft like this will be in the works for us.
I have been wanting to join this blog hop for a while. I love seeing what the kids have made. It’s also very inspiring to see what others are doing as well. I am always looking for new ideas of things to do with the kids.
Today has been an amazing day! Good Day Wisconsin was a lot of fun to be at this morning. I was so very nervous about being on TV, I forgot stuff that I wanted to say. I guess you could say I was camera shy. Definitely a new experience and at least I know what to expect next time. I am a little bummed out that my daughter didn’t go with me as she was so looking forward to going. Instead she watched from the living room being sick. She did have some fun when I came home and you will see how shortly.
