What a beautiful sunny start to the Half term holidays. We get very excited at this time of the year with Halloween and Bonfire Night so close together and it's even better this year as Halloween is during the half term holidays. The children were desperate to get the decorations out of the loft to dress the windows and the front of the house, so that is going to be our job tomorrow.
Today we decided to make miniature ghosts and "Wicked" witches hats to hang from our spooky tree. I'd already visited the great www.prettylittlepartyshop.co.uk for some items that we could use, paper cones, pretty string and we were ready to go. The children enjoyed painting the cones for the hats, I was a little concerned that they would look like Christmas trees, but I don't think they do.
We will however use the cones with sequins and glitter in December to make trees too. The goggly eyes worked well too and a cheeky mouth and our ghosts were ready. The children loved the activity and it was so simple to do. There are a lot more crafty products available at www.prettylittlepartyshop.co.uk and I will be stocking up for Christmas!
