Those you that follow us on Instagram, might have seen Slim Jim's ecstatic reaction to me folding socks (a chore I hadn't really done in months). Which means when I finally folded socks which meant we had several unmatched socks. Perfect for this quick kid friendly Halloween craft.
Ryder and I drew the little faces on them. It was fun to see Ryder's perfection concentration as he put on the faces. The hardest part was trying to get the ghosts from the kids to put it on the crochet thread to make the banner (I ended up leaving one off for them to play with).
Over all it was easy and the kids got to participate, which we both enjoyed. Now I don't have to feel like I am a bad mom because I am not great about decorating for seasonal stuff (we really don't have the storage space for seasonal decorations). Something that Ryder has recently noticed my short comings in this regard so I might try and look for something this easy (and cheap) for all the seasons.
Cost: $0, everything was used making supplies on hand
If you are good at matching your socks and don't have any socks lying around you might want to check out the red kitchen's: Ghost Garland. I already had my post in the works when I saw hers sweet one, I guess it is just a case of crafty minds think alike.
Tomorrow we return to our regular Family Photo Stitched with Love Series.
