Easy Script Name Skeletons

Some days you just need an easy and fun activity to bond with the kiddos.  Our household always feels hectic at this time of the year. (Ok, who am I kidding?  It feels hectic year round... Oy!)  So I came up with this fun Halloween activity to create and connect with my eldest son.   Lately he's been learning to write script letters, so he loved making his own Script Name Skeleton with me.

Cute Cat, Pumpkin, and Skull Halloween Kirigami

Today I'm sharing three designs for cat, pumpkin, and Day of the Dead skull kirigami!  Awhile back we made these super easy Halloween paper chains from construction paper.  This year I upped the ante by creating designs that opened up like snowflakes.   Aren't they neat?  I love creating different fun snowflake designs so this paper craft was right up my alley!

Colorful and Glittery Skull Craft

In the midst of what is going on in our country, I almost feel hesitant to keep posting this week.  How can I write posts about crafts, Sharpie markers, and glitter when there is so much misunderstanding, hurt, and turmoil going on?

But you know what?  This blog is my happy place. And being creative and making things with my son makes me happy.  So I'm going to keep making and posting... even while we try to wrap my mind around everything that's going on.

That being said- this Halloween/ Dia De Los Muertos Craft is from awhile back.  We're keeping  the skulls up until Thanksgiving... so I figure I could still post about them here too.

Play Doh Dia De Los Muertos Sugar Skull Kids Craft

I love this time of year because we celebrate Hallowen and Dia De Los Muertos at the same time.  While I'm not Mexican, I do appreciate Dia De Los Muertos.  It's a good reminder to celebrate and remember those that are no longer with us.

Every year my son and I have done an easy craft to celebrate the holiday.  (You can find the whole list below.)  This year we tried an easy open-ended play doh sugar skull activity.  Gotta say, the results were pretty fabulous!

Quirky Fox Gift Box Craft

Ah fall.  Colorful leaves, cool air, and.... forest animals?  Hello, friends!  We've done 3D Butterfly Gift Wrapping and Kiss Wrapping Paper over here on the blog.  I figured it was time to do a fall-themed wrapping paper idea.  And what says fall more than foxes?   (Ok, ok.  Perhaps forest animals aren't particularly fall-ish... but they are on trend and oh so cute!)

How to fold an Easy Origami School Bus (And a book list)

School is right around the corner.  Eeek.  Are you ready?  We're excited and nervous around here to finally be going to "big kid school."   Ever since we folded Origami Yoda and Origami Pikachu together, my son's really been into origami crafts.  To go along with the back-to-school theme, we recently folded these origami school buses together.
