Halloween Pinterest Idea Faves

It's no secret, I heart pinterest! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays in terms of decore, so I have had fun trying to make some of my pins realities. Here are some of my favorite Halloween Pinterest ideas past, present, and (hopefully) future:

  • Last year I fell in love with a white pumpkin that was carved with a Jack Skellington face and made into a flower vase. I made it, and loved it so much that I made it again this year.

The kids LOVE it!
Tip: Dollar Tree stores sell little fishbowl type vases that are perfect for medium sized pumpkins!

  • Next up I wanted a little-kid-friendly Halloween activity. 
I saw this pin and decided this was the one! 
From TinkerLabs
Simply cut out pumpkin shapes from orange and black construction paper and cut out green stems. The kids draw faces on all of the pumpkins, and help assemble it all with glue and string/ribbon. My son's preschool has been focusing on emotions lately so I decided to incorporate those lessons into our Halloween activity. I encouraged them to draw different emotions on their pumpkins and we talked about each one as they drew them. It was a great time and we ended up with happy, sad, angry, surprised, scared, and disgusted pumpkins decorating our entryway:

  •  Next on the Halloween agenda I plan to make these fun cake pops:

  • Here's one from a couple of years ago that was a huge hit at our Halloween party as well as a very popular pin since then:
