We Have Spiders!



Ok not really real spiders! But kids pretending to BE spiders! Our final theme for October is “Web Of Wonders”. Don’t forget to order your November kit now from Funshine Express!

It has been so fun watching the kids create spider crafts and play the spider games! They have really enjoyed learning about spiders and pretending to be spiders also!

Here are some examples of their fun crafts!






Clown Around!

We are just wrapping up our Funshine Express “Hats Off to You” unit! But, before we do I wanted to share one more fun post!

The Fireflies kit included to fun crafts this time! A Party Hat and A Clowning Around Ruffle. I thought it would be fun to combine the two crafts to make a super cute clown costume.

As always the crafts were super simple and easy to prepare and make. We added some fun stickers to the party hats too!



The kids had a blast making the clown ruffles. We used eye droppers and water colored with food coloring to create them. What a great fine motor activity!





No clown is complete without a red nose, right? Use a pom pom with some Vaseline on the back to help it stick. Your clown is complete!



We finished off the clowning by reading “Clown Around” by Dana Meachen Rau. It was fun to have the kiddos act out the story after reading it a few times. And SHHHH…. It was a great gross motor activity!


Spooky Food!

I have been sharing all week about out Halloween Birthday party. Today I’m sharing the spooky food that we served!

I’ll let you in on a little secret… It wasn’t anything special but If you give something ordinary a spooky name the kids will love it!

Here is what was on the menu!

Assorted potions and tonics… (soda pop)

We found some sticker labels at party city. But, I ran out and went Pinterest hunting and found some that you can print yourself and adhere with packing tape. Get them HERE.



Dried Brains and Pumpkin Poop…(chips)



I found cheese balls in a large tub and painted a jack-o-lantern face on the tub.

Monster Eyes… (Marshmallow Popcorn Balls)


Zombie toes wrapped in Mummy Wrappers… (hotdogs & buns)
