Our first fall crafts.....

We had so much fun doing two of the crafts and one of the activities out of the Family Fun magazine. My Tom Sawyer can't wait for this season to arrive and had almost worn out the magazine looking at all of the activities.  We will do some more once I collect the supplies.   My kids absolutely loved making the pumkins and they turned out great.  I didn't have all the supplies but was able to find everything around the house to adapt the project.  You know whats under the fabric on those pumkins?  TOLIET PAPER!!! I think they came out great.



Next we made oragami bats.  My little Tom Sawyer will probably want me to help him make a whole bunch of these before Halloween.



Then we did a trick.  Did you know that you can stand on Balloons without them popping.  YOU CAN! If you manage to get on them perfectly balanced.  THis is about our 3rd attempt.  THe balloons held the weight of each of my kids.  Pretty cool trick.  (Do excuse my messy floor).

  4. Ohhh boy! My boys would so get a tickle out of that balloon idea! I am going to let them try it. They would also consider it 'dangerous', since they could fall over, so it makes it even cooler! LOL Not really dangerous, but you know how boys are! Thanks for the comment left on my blog! Hope your week remaining is a really awesome one!
