Early morning wake-up calls. Packed lunches. Schedules. Homework. For moms this may mean the household is back to some semblance of normalcy, but for kids, it spells D O O M.
However, even though school is back in session it doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. With Halloween right around the corner, why not engage your children in a fun afternoon craft project?
is an easy way to not only bring out that (perhaps stifled) creative side of your child, but it’s also good for the environment and makes a nice gift for a grandparent, teacher or special friend.
What You Need:
~ recycled Honey Bear container
~ decorative paper and/or stickers
~ black craft paint
~ ribbon or raffia (black & orange)
~ candy such as jellybeans or M&M's
- wash, rinse, dry Bear Honey container
- paint the lid black and wrap orange ribbon around bottom
- unfold black raffia (or wide black ribbon) and glue around bottom of lid
- affix sticker or Halloween paper on front (to cover label)
- use black ribbon or raffia to make cape and glue around neck
- fill with candy
Try this on a rainy day or closer to Halloween for a fun project.
