For the holidays I like to make little crafts with Annabelle that I can put out each year as decorations. This year we’ve made a few for Halloween. These two were inspired by crafts I saw on Pinterest.
The first is from the blog Happenings Of The Harper Household. She made Halloween cards with tiny handprint spiders.
I thought this little guy would be a perfect craft to make with Annabelle and then frame as a sweet Halloween keepsake decoration. You can head on over to Danielle’s blog to get step-by-step instructions on how to make a spider with your little love.
Here’s Annabelle’s creepy-crawling little masterpiece…
She LOVED having her hand painted and making little handprints. She kept saying, “Mommy paint my hand again. Please, Mommy!” So we ended up with A LOT of extra little prints. I added a little “Happy Halloween” caption and the date to her picture so we’ll remember when we made this little craft together.
The next craft I found on Evolving Mommy. She made cards with little footprint ghosts on them.
I thought this craft would also be super fun for Annabelle. You can head on over too Catherine’s blog to get step-by-step instructions on how to turn your little one’s tootsies into scary ghosts.
Again, Annabelle was a BIG fan of getting painted. She loved stepping on the paper to make her little print…and was cheering like crazy with me when we got one that was perfect. Here’s her spooky little picture…
I know that every year when I unpack my Halloween decorations, the memory of making these with her (as well as seeing her tiny framed prints) will make me smile.
