I have another super cute and easy kid-friendly craft to share with you today!
Now, let’s be honest: When I say kid-friendly, what I really mean is that this craft was totally for me and Kennedy just didn’t get mad at me for making her do it with me. If there were no kids around, I’d probably still make these. They’re just so darn cute!
-Paint the rocks orange (we used dollar store acrylic paint).
-Let the paint dry.
-Draw faces on them in Sharpie.
-Line them up on a window sill and enjoy their cuteness (or spookiness depending on how easily frightened you are by our skillful drawings of scary faces).
See that long tall one on the end? That’s supposed to be the scariest one of all. That’s the lawyer! Seriously. How does my 7 year old even know what a lawyer is? She’s hilarious though. Look, you’ve never even met her and you love her already. I can tell.
I found this idea on Pinterest originally and you can see the way they did it here. I didn’t really investigate what they did before diving in, but upon further investigation, it looks like a whole different ball game. Check it out and see which one works for you!
And here’s another tip for ya! Do you have one of these long olive tray things hiding in your cupboard? I always love these plates and think they’re so funky looking, but never actually get around to using them. Why not pull them out and use them to line up tiny cute things, therefore making the tiny cute things even cuter? I can see acorns or tiny Christmas balls looking really neat in one of these too.
So that’s the craft! A great way to pass an hour or so on a weekend afternoon in October. Your kids will think you’re fun and you’ll end up with a cute little tray of Halloweeny cheer!
