Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love pulling out my glue gun and fabric scraps and getting crafty. The other night I actually lost sleep as I brainstormed on how I would make the kids their requested pirate and pirate princess costumes this year--only to wake and be told they changed their minds and now want to be Spider-man (yuck, how to I get crafty with Spider-man? Red sequins and blue velvet perhaps??) and a black cat. This has happened about 23 times now.
Halloween is a great time to get creative and also show children that with our imaginations and a few art materials we can dream up anything (and much better than what they might be asking for at the store.) I encourage you to make your own costumes this year and do so with your children. It's a great tradition to have and much better for our minds and world!
Happy Halloween crafting!!
