Yesterday Granny and I had a craft day with the girls. This was all Granny Sue's idea and I let her run with it, I just showed up for the fun. Needless to say I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into.
To my surprise, Granny had done her research and came armed with three Halloween/fall crafts, each using pine cones. We would be turning out pine cones into owls, spiders and bats. I was a bit skeptical…
I have to admit once I saw what she had planned I wasn't convinced the endeavor would be successful, but I didn't share my opinion, put on my happy face and dug in. To my surprise the crafts went off with very little problems. I was shocked!
In the end we had spiders that looked like spiders, bats that resembled bats and owls that looked more like Cousin Itt! The owls didn't turn out the best, but were cute anyway.
We hung the finished products over the bar in a fun banner display! I have to give Sue credit, she pulled off a really fun activity!
Mason missed out on the crafts (we confidently did it during nap time!), but he was excited to see the final product and jump in the picture!
Great activity for kids and adults! It was fun to get to use our imagination, lots of glue and create fun ghoulish masterpieces! Bring on fall and Halloween! My only complaint is I didn't take more close up pics of the finished products, there were some real jewels in the mix….scary jewels of course!
