On Sunday I promised that I would share a fun fall craft that I did with my kiddos, so here it is!
The last couple weeks, I've been racking my brain, trying to come up with something new and fun for Halloween. I'm on a really tight budget, so I didn't want to spend any money on new decorations. As you've seen in my past posts, HERE and HERE, I really like to reuse and recycle items and turn them into something fun. So here's what we made. Can you guess what they're made out of?
So did you guess what they're made out of? Well, wonder no longer! :)
I originally wanted to use empty toilet paper rolls, but when I came up with the idea, we didn't have any empty rolls. So I looked around, and in my recycle pile were these containers. We go through this 'juice' like crazy! My husband is diabetic, so anything sugar free is a hit in our home.
So I took off the wrappers and cut all the containers in half, and went to town! My two oldest kiddos LOVED helping with this! I have to admit that I'm kind of a perfectionist, so sometimes it gave me hives to sit and watch them do these crafts! But we loved it, and the kids did an awesome job! In fact, my kids were begging me to let them make more! Here they are with their favorite ones! :)
Well, this is definitely a craft we will be doing again! And the best thing about these is that they actually fit on my itty-bitty mantle and didn't cost me a penny! I can't think of a better decoration for my house than kid-made crafts!! I love them! We might just be making these into turkeys next month!! :)
Thanks for reading!
