Happy Halloween!

Carefree Crafts came in a padded envelope via USPS. I got an email saying S’s package had shipped and it was in the mailbox the next day.  It was addressed to S, so it made his day to get a package in the mail and not just an envelope.

Outer Package

When S and I opened the package he was so excited to see what crafts were included.  Here are the crafts included for this month. There were 6 Halloween related crafts enclosed in the Happy Halloween! kit.  It also gave a brief description of each craft and some fun Halloween facts.  This month was the first time that I can remember we did not get a glue stick.  Yeah, and then I saw permanent markers.  Still going to be a messy month, but we love it!

Information Sheet

Information Sheet

Color a Trick-or-Treat Bag-When we opened the outer package all of the crafts were inside this bag.  This first thing S says when he see this, I always wanted one.  Really, do you even know what it is?

Monster Pumpkin-The picture on the information sheet shows it to be orange, the one we received was white.  Then I read on the description that you need to color the lantern with the markers included.  Either we will make it a ghost or I am guessing S will be asking me to color it orange (or red his favorite color) for him.

Update: S has been into eyeballs lately.  Every time we go to a store he always points out the eyeballs in the Halloween section.  So instead of making the recommended orange pumpkin we made an eyeball.  S loves it and we are going to hang it on the entertainment center.

Halloween Lacing Puppet-There were three different puppets you could have received.  We got the one that was on the info sheet the green witch.  I am not sure S knew what this was when he looked at the package, but he does know how to use a puppet.  I am sure he will have fun with this playing with Baby A.

Spider Puppet-I showed this to S and the first thing he said was, “I don’t like spiders.”  When I told him it was not a real puppet, just a craft we are going to make.  He was okay with it, but I do not think he is 100% sure about it.  I think he will like it after we make it.

Update: S is really scared of spiders and it still took some convincing to make this craft.  Once we made it I pretended I was scared of the big spider so now he thinks it is funny to scare me with it.  That’s better then him being scared of the spider.

Tissue Paper Ghost-I do not see S being able to do this craft.  I think this may be above his skill level.  If we make this we may have to do the tissue paper a little different.  We’ll see what S wants to do when it comes time.

Masquerade Ball Sticker Scene- This seems like a really easy craft for S to do.  Somehow I think he is going to end up sticking the stickers on me and him instead of creating a scene.  He just likes to have us wear stickers instead of putting them on paper.

The crafts look really fun, but I don’t think S is going to be able to do any of them except for the sticker scene without some serious involvement from me.  I could be wrong and will only know once we have tried the crafts.  I plan to try and do a lot of these crafts this week and will post pictures of the crafts when they are completed, along with how S liked them so check back to this posting to see the final products.
