This is a great project for kids and the result looks great, even if the eyes are not exactly symmetrical or the same size, it just makes them look more scary! A fun and easy Halloween craft for the whole family, here is how they are made:
Everyone loves tie dye, but hates the mess it takes to make it. Buying and handling the dye, buckets of dye that splatter and stain the floor and rugs. All the wringing and soaking and hanging.

Cookie Decorating Party for Kids
When I was a kid, I had a friend named Mandy, whose grandmother had a party for her every Christmas. It was a very special party, you see, because we got to decorate Christmas cookies! Each child got three cookies to decorate, one for their mom, one for their dad and one for themselves. It was so fun! There were all kinds of shapes: trees, stars, reindeer, gingerbread men, bells and more. It was always so hard to decide on the three you wanted!
A friend of mine has a really good blog called My Family Exercise. It centers on Children's Health and how to help your child be more healthy in a fun way.
The lastest blog post on his blog fit perfectly in with the theme of my blog, so I asked him if I could put a link in and share it with you all. I hope you enjoy it!
