Joy of Halloween DIY Robot Costumes - Share the Joy Linky

We have been busy the last couple days creating Halloween DIY Robot Costumes. Last week was the first time in over 3 years that worked away from home while my children was on a school break. I spent most of the week training at a new job while my husband was able to use holiday time to spend the week with our children during their half-term school back. I think he enjoyed making new special memories but I did miss them all tons. 
As I shared in last week's Share the Joy post, I grew up with handmade costumes sewn by my mother and I encourage my children to use their imagination to think of new Halloween costume ideas each year. I was surprised on Wednesday when I came home from work to discover that while I was gone that holes were cut in a couple boxes to create the beginnings of robot costumes. Big Sister expressed that she wanted to be a robot for Halloween while Little Brother wanted to be pumpkin robot.  The last couple days, we have used my supply of metallic Pinty Plus spray paint to spray the cardboard boxes. Little Brother's box required an orange sponged painting. With some glitter card stock, pipe cleaners, and lots of glue we were able to create this year's Halloween costumes. A quick spray of metallic paints on some black leggings and some new Iridescent Rainbow Trainers finished off Big Sister's costume. Big Sister is excited to head out trick-or-treating this year.

What are you or your children dressing up as this Halloween?

Halloween Crafting 2016 - #SpooktacularCraft

A couple weeks ago we received a box from Viking. Little LadyBug (LL) enjoyed opening the box and discovering the craft supplies that we were sent for some quick and easy Halloween crafting projects. The box contained: lollipops, pipe cleaners, googly eyes, yarn (black, orange and white), white marker pen, glue stick, coloured tissue paper and several patterned scissors.

We were very excited when our new book arrived from Parragon Books for October. This month's book is "Pumpkins, Pumpkins Everywhere" by Smriti Parasadam-Halls and Lorena Alvarez. Halloween is one of our favourite time of year in our home so we were thrilled to receive a new Halloween themed book with its colourful glittery front cover.
