After dinner fun!
I raced home from work, and made a stop at the scrapbooking place for some Halloween papers to use to cover my mini book that I am making in the shape of a haunted house. Oh yes...I found everything cool for it. Then I raced home to find my DIL had made dinner. I raced in to eat. Then...the most amazing thing happened...
The kids and I started turning an empty diaper box into a haunted house!
I used all my papers to decorate floors and walls. We have one outer wall of the house that has a spooky black tree and owl silhoutte, and my daughter made windows for the outside that showed ghousish figures inside the house. I cut out big blocks of one paper that had different characters on them, and glued them to the indoor walls. We got this far in about 2 hours...and we have a pretty cool looking haunted house! Now each day until Halloween we are making paper furniture and I think a black chandelier, and a few hanging spiders would be cool. Donovan really had fun watching it come together. It's a group project and we are all contributing. Daughter is making an orange couch as we speak! What a really fun evening! Gooooooooooooooodnight!
