Happy Halloween!

C’est l’Halloween!
I held my annual Kids Spooktacular Craftin’ Class on Sunday. Nine very excited kids attended (2 were mine, but they still count lol). Sometimes it can be a challenge to design for kids, but this year, the variety of Halloween products offered in the holiday catalogue made it easy. For my kids classes, I like to have them make 2 crafts and 1 card. Before they began, I had them label and decorate a plain white bag so they had something to carry all their loot in. Here’s the card they made:

I love the sentiment! This card involved a LOT of stamping and some serious adult supervision to make sure inks weren’t mixed. One of my downline offered to help me that day, which was a huge help! Thank you Andrea F.!

Next up, a cute little treat bag:

Kids used the mini treat bag thinlits and stamped and coloured the sentiment. Inside was glow in the dark fangs and a brand new light up toothbrush. I was hoping that would score me points with the parents 😉 since candy was on the way. The last craft involved decorating a mini pizza box. I didn’t take a picture of the inside, but there was candy of course, a glow-in-the-dark mouse and a tattoo.

And because having 9 kids over wasn’t enough, I also simultaneously held a product-based class for adults who wanted to make 24 treats to hand out to co-workers, or their kids’ class. I had 2 lovely people attend, and they each received a pack of the Spooky designer series paper, a pack of black rhinestones and some black baker’s twine. Here’s what they made:

Needless to say, after all was said and done I was exhausted! But the smiles on the kids’ faces make it all worth it!

Have fun trick-or-treating my friends!
