Some of the best decorations are homemade and right now, I am in love with the door frames in our home. Our spider art activity lasted a larg part of the morning. What is better than giving kids free reign of glitter and glue? Nothing. She went full speed ahead and pretty soon, we had a collection of THE CUTEST spiders that I hope will be hanging at Halloween for years to come! She was so engrossed, I finished the laundry, made some homemade lara bars and drank my tea while it was still hot!
Bonus Tip: Egg containers make GREAT organizers for things like glue, glitter, sequins, and googly eyes! I always have a few to use for activities just like this! It keeps everything organized but also lets you control how much glitter is available and in my experience keeps it from getting totally out of control.
Second bonus tip: Put a small amount of glue in a cup (or one of the egg cartons). It makes for much easier clean up and using the brush encourages fine motor developement! :)
