Felt Jack-O-Lanterns

Since Halloween is just around the corner, we've been playing with all of our fun Halloween stuff to play with. I made these cute felt board style jack-o-lanterns last year but Laural was the only one who used them since Micah wasn't quite ready. This year, both kids have been enjoying them.

I cut two orange circles at about 8 inches diameter and then cut a variety of eyes, ears, mouths, noses, hair, hats, and other items.

Mouths & Eyes

Whiskers, Mustaches & Noses

Hats & Hair

Ears & Horns

The kids had a lot of fun making up lots of different faces.

Laural started with a blue-haired princess.

Micah made an interesting jak-o-lantern face.

I got in on the fun and made a pig-nosed, mustached, blue-haired vampire with a jaunty little hat.

Halloween Sensory Tubs

Yep, we did two sensory tubs for Halloween this year. I figured I might get a little more peace if I had a tub for each of them to play with.

First up is the Creepy Crawly Tub. It's got black beans, various plastic bugs & spiders, a ghost bell, wicker pumpkin basket, candy corn candle holder with battery operated tealight candle, jack-o-lantern metal bucket, plastic leafy sprigs, a little wooden pumpkin and plastic confetti pumpkins. 

Laural started this one off. I just had to post the second picture because of the goofy look on her face.

The second is the Monster Tub and is filled with purple water pearls, googly eyes, green porcupine balls and 2 submersible led lights. The water beads are typically used for fresh flower arrangements. They are slippery and fun to play with!

Micah really enjoyed squishing the pearls in his hands. I like playing with them too.

I have a bunch of other fun Halloween goodies for the kids to play with too. I'll be posting some of that stuff later and try not to let a month go past between posting again!
