Halloween Projects...

I posted the Halloween projects I've done. Now it's time to show one the kids did.

T Rex is especially excited about his Halloween party coming up on Saturday. The un-haunted, Halloween house is one of the decorations. What started out as a simple, intimate party where only a few invitations went out has turned into quite the social event. He just kept inviting people. A library book "Mouse's Halloween Party" really made an impression.

For this project, I actually took a box, taped it, and covered it with chocolate frosting. This way nothing would collapse while they were decorating. Worked like a charm. Bebe Sister especially liked tasting the goods before placing them on the house. T Rex sternly declined as he does not like chocolate. Neighbor M was kind enough to give us the stuff for our project (thank you, M).

The kids did a great job. Here is the finished project...

The kids just make these kinds of things oodles more fun than they otherwise would be. Stay tuned...I am sure there will be more about this party. Goodness knows I need the fun - school has been crazy hence the ticker on the sidebar counting down until graduation. I've also started listening to review CDs for my certification exam next summer. I have them playing in the car and the kids like to try to guess the answers to the questions or alternatively, T Rex will ask me questions like, "Mama, what do you want for dinner? A - Mac n Cheese, B- Carrots, C- Breakfast, or D - all of the above." Maybe they can take the exam, too.

Okay that house is ADORABLE!! Equally adorable is Princess' hair in a ponytail/clip combo! She looks SOOO OLD! Great idea to frost a box! I will have to remember that for gingerbread house time!

Wish we could come on Saturday!
