Halloween Crafts - Pintervention Needed

Pinterest has gotten me into so much trouble this Halloween season. We've had a lot of Halloween crafting going on around here, mostly due to innocent searches on Pinterest for things like "kids Halloween crafts" and "Halloween baking" and "easy Halloween projects." There is so much cute on the site, it's easy to get sucked in.

First, we made these fun spooky handprint canvasses. Olivia's is her handprint turned ghost. Ellie's is both her handprints turned spider. Adorable, right?

Then, we made some mummy cookie pops for Olivia's class when it was her turn to be "star of the week." They were a big hit.

For our neighborhood Halloween party, we made these grotesque finger cookies. Not only did they have visual impact but they also are a delicious cookie recipe. We'll be using this again during the holidays for sure!

Finally, we took a little family time away from Pinterest crafts to go out to the pumpkin patch - one of my favorite seasonal traditions. The girls had a wonderful time!

Happy Halloween! May yours be creepy and crafty!
