I had a few people mention that they would be interested in seeing more crafts on here. I posted a few photos of recent activities that I did with Lani. The first is of Lani painting with orange JELLO. We talk a lot about the smell, color, texture, etc. Does she get that orange and Halloween go together? No, of course not. This is just a fun expressive activity for the kiddos.


Here is Lani's sweet little foot prints that I made into ghosts! I hopefully will be posting more about this over on Momspark.


This is a pumpkin bag that Lani is painting. We stuffed a brown lunch bag with newspaper and tied it off. Then she painted the bottom orange and eventually the stem brownish green. Later we glued on a jack o lantern face. I don't have a finished photo of the product, but it's adorable and makes a sweet decoration.

If you have any questions about these activities be sure to let me know in the comments or shoot me an email (wesnlani at gmail dot com). I would be more than happy to help you out!! Be on the lookout for more craft ideas over the next several months! I love the holidays and the activities are endless:)

You should go back to school and go into education. I bet you'd enjoy teaching kindergarten or first grade.
