Couple/Maternity Costume: Peanuts

Last year, my husband and I featured my pregnant belly in our costumes for Halloween...we dressed as part of the Peanuts gang:
Couple Costume: Peanuts
For my husband, I turned a yellow shirt he had inside out and basted on some black fabric to make the zig-zag of Charlie Brown's shirt. He wore black short, long socks, a ball-cap and a baseball glove to complete his ensemble. A simple Charlie Brown costume.

For myself, I found a white maternity shirt, and quickly sewed on some eyes, ears, and a black pom-pom that I made out of yarn for Snoopy's nose. Our costumes were done within an hour and hardly cost us anything! A simple maternity costume. After Halloween, I took all the pieces off our shirts and we got to keep wearing them :).

Now to figure out what we're wearing this year...

Here's where I found my Snoopy inspiration. Here's how to make a pom-pom. I'll be linking up to Tip Me Tuesday at Tip Junkie.

5 Little Pumpkins Craft

My daughter fell in love with the book "5 Little Pumpkins" and asked me to read it to her again...and again...and again! So, I knew that this 5 Little Pumpkins Crafts would be perfect for her.

All you need is: construction paper (black, orange, brown, yellow), or craft foam, Popsicle sticks, glue sticks, and a toddler to help :).

Easy Fall Decor: Pumpkins

I love decor that is easy, affordable and versatile. These pumpkins are made from construction paper and chenille stems! Plus they're easy to make, and kids can make them with you.

Another bonus is that they work for the entire fall season.

Crazy Hair Day for Boys- Spider Web

I've been waiting anxiously for crazy hair day to come around so I could try something new on my boys' hair (it's so much harder to do crazy things in boys' hair!!!). Finally we got to try out crazy spider web hair:
Crazy Har Day for boys

I had to use quite a bit of gel and even then the web didn't stay down very well around the edge of their faces, but it looked awesome on top. My 7 year old said he was very popular that day at school :).

Popsicle Stick Challenge

Over the summer, our local library had a Popsicle stick challenge. Each contestant was given 150 sticks to build whatever we wanted. Here are the entries from our family:
Popsicle Stick Challenge
The rules were simple...we could only use Popsicle sticks, cardboard and school glue. I made the windmill, my 10 year old made the tower and ship, my 3 year old made the train shed (with a bit of help), and my 8 year old made the parking garage.

What would your family make with 150 Popsicle sticks?
