Trunk or Treat 2011 :: Angry Birds Edition

...another trip down the Halloween memory lane...

The time: 2011

The place: The Donia (our church)

The setting: Trunk or Treat

The game :: ANGRY BIRDS

Let me start by saying that I seriously think my son (13 at the time) and I had as much fun putting this all together as the kids had playing it.

The game was completely interactive with the ANGRY BIRDS bouncing all over the place.  It was a lot of fun.

We used small "kick balls" for all of the green pigs and Angry Birds to launch.  I cut all of the Angry Birds on display out of poster board.  The "wooden" pieces are all spray painted boxes that I later actually used to ship orders.  We don't waste around here!

A Spooky Halloween Upcycle Project

Salsa, pasta sauce, alfredo, dressing... oh my!!  Not such a great combo. Unless of course you are upcycling the jars to become a fun Halloween Spooky project!!

{Two years ago}

My son and I (mostly my son), added colored tissue paper to the OUTSIDE of the jars using mod podge.  I then added the spooky decal faces and the candles inside.  They have a fun glow to them.

{Custom Decals :: Party Edition}

A good friend of mine was throwing her soon to be 2 year old a Sesame Street birthday party at the hands on museum.  She found everything she needed except for the favor bags... decals to the rescue!!!

You've Been Boo'D

{Recap from last Halloween}

So tonight my son and I had some fun boo'ing a couple neighbors.  I found a few printables for Boo'ing online but decided to design my own... to add my personal touch!  It was supposed to a fun, anonymous type thing, but both neighbors new I was the culprit. It was still fun... and we are looking forward to doing a few more.

After attempting to boo one of the neighbors, my son ran back into the house full of giggles. He said he was getting ready to leave the boo bag at the door and when he looked up, he saw their door was open (they have a glass door before the front door). He ran in here yelling, "abort mission! I've been compromised!!

One of best part of boo'ing the neighbors for me was having to call my husband on the way home from work and asking him to pick up mini marshmallows. He asked what I needed them for and I told him... ghost  poop. When he got home, he handed me the bag and said, "here's your ghost poop."

It was fun... I would recommend this fun Halloween activity for everyone with little ones... even a 13 year old like mine.

Fun & Practical Play Time

Owning my own home based business and having a 3 year old home with me during the day is not an easy task.  I actually do not get much work done during the day at all.  During her "work" time, I sit her desk next to mine and have her do worksheets.  Other than that, my "work" day is really non-existent.  Then there are the days I have to get something done but she wants to play... and usually outside.  As much as I am family first, a work dead-line is a dead-line so I must get it done.  So we must improvise...

Today she wanted to go outside and play hopscotch...

My solution: An indoor hopscotch floor decal in the living room, which can be easily covered up by the area rug when she is all done.  While my vinyl is cutting on the machine, I can even play a few rounds with her.
