Whoa! Already time to think about Halloween?
YEP! It sure it. And one of my fave things to do is crafts. I hardly have the time to do them like I use to and I can say that I'm 'average' at them. But I sure love to make them with young kids!
So when Hershey asked me to take part in their awesome HERSHEY'S Boo Blvd. I was totally down with dusting off the desk in my crafting room!
My neighborhood is big in the partytime every year and I always love ot create fun things for the kids to enjoy.
This year, the kids' are old enough to create some fun on their own with a little help from me.
We're going to make Boo Buckets.
Here is what you need:
-- Buckets (Can be big or small, plastic, metal, etc. It doesn't matter!)
-- Paper, decorations, anything Halloween-esque! (Even some toilet paper. Mummys anyone?)
-- Kids (You gotta have craft makers on hand!)
-- Take a bucket and cut a long piece of toilet paper down the middle with jagged scissors giving it rough edges. (You can rip it too to give it the frayed look.)
-- Use craft dots and put one dot on the bucket to start the toilet paper wrap. Then wrap the bucket accordingly.
-- Create a 'girl mummy' by adding jewels, lips & eyelashes to the bucket
-- Create a 'boy mummy' with ribbon.
-- Add eyes to the toilet paper
Bling Boo Bucket
These are my fave and so simple to do!!
-- Gather your favorite jewels & bling in the craft department
-- Use crafts dots to write out the words you want.
-- Use tweezers to place your 'bling' on the craft dots on the buckets.
-- Add ribbon and flair!
Mad Monster Bucket:
-- Cut green scrap paper into random shapes and sizes.
-- Randomly place them with craft dots on the bucket
-- Add big wiggly eyes.
-- Curl black pipecleaner around a pencil to create a curly design.
-- Add the pipecleaner for ears
