Craft Time...

I finally got back in the saddle with Craft Time.  Once school started things got a little busier.
B asked me the other night, "Why don't we make crafts anymore?" 
I was glad that she missed them, but that question made me feel horrible.  Guilt is a huge part of a mom's job and I don't handle it well.  So, I decided that every week from now until Halloween we will make at least one craft which means that I also decided to do one Craft Time post a week from now until Halloween! 

Are you excited?

I thought you would be!

Our first Halloween craft was Egg Carton Spiders.  These were super easy.  The worst part was waiting for the paint to dry.  Someone needs to invent paint that dries in 60 seconds.  They make nail polish that dries in 60 seconds.  Why not paint?

Anywho...cut as many sections as you need from the egg carton and paint them.  You were supposed to use black, but it isn't fun following directions so I let the girls pick which color(s) they wanted.  Mel, of course, picked orange.  B, of course, picked pink and blue.

Allow the spider body to dry then poke a hole in both sides with a pencil.
Shove four pipe cleaners in one side and out the other.
Bend the legs... 
Glue or draw on the eyes...
